A young musician finds himself in a rough sword-and-sorcery world of
anthropomorphic animals. I'm not used to books with narrators that,
while hooking to one character's perception (Jon-Tom's) in general, are
omniscient; so that bothered me a bit. And it was redundant in a few
places. But it was very well crafted, if not incredibly brilliantly
written, and inspiringly imaginative. A good series to get into.
