THE LEFT HAND OF GOD by Paul Hoffman

I quite enjoyed The Left Hand of God, partly because it's a well-written fantasy tale, and partly because it jogs along at a good pace and doesn't leave you wondering for 300 pages whether or not a particular hook is actually going to bear any fruit (if I may mix my metaphors). Yes, I have just finished what there is to read of The Wheel of Time, so yes, you can sense some relief.

I think my only criticism is that the whole thing was a bit simplistic and the 'hero' moved through an arc well-worn by many other heroes of similar ilk. But that doesn't detract from the fact that I enjoyed it. I expect Hoffman will bring out something else quite soon. And I expect I'll buy it.
