Reviews of Warslayer, the (2002)

Review by fastfinge (2005-11-07)
I admire this book for having the utterly improbable phrase "This is a genuine interdimensional stuffed elephant." I admire any heroine who cuddles a stuffed elephant; I believe that if more people treasured a stuffed animal of some sort, the world would be a better place. I'm not quite sure how it would be better, but it would.

As for the book, it's surprisingly good. Funny but not silly, full of people who try their best, characters who make hard choices, and things that don't always come out right, it's an escape from reality that offers us feelings and hopes we can all identify with in some way. I'm left with the feeling that I don't quite agree with the obvious morral, and an abiding desire to watch the associated tv show.

This book is open for expansion into a series, but even if it never happens, or I never read the rest of the books, I'm satisfied with the ending provided.
