|This review is part of your Crusader package. I will be doing at least one more myself. There is at least one other Crusader doing your package.
I. OVERALL: I thought To the Death was great as possibly a fourth or fifth novel. The story of these two strong characters could make a very interesting epic series of novels.
STRENGTHS: Both of the characters have very strong personalities. And the ending was also great.
WEAKNESSES: Not enough background work for this to do well on it's own. They are old friends turned bitter rivals. How did they get that way? The earlier novels would explain the stealing and their relationship better.
PLOT: Very good plot.
SPELLING: No spelling problems that I could see.
PUNCTUATION: No problem in this area either.
GRAMMAR: None that I could tell in my reading.
MY SUGGESTIONS: Continue with this work by going back. It is possible to get at least 14 to 16 books with these two wonderful characters. One of how they met and became friends and then rivals,One for each of the twelve kingdoms that had things taken, One tell of how he got to the lair, this one of the battle, One for them meeting again after this one. These are not characters that should have been shelved.
