#bookreview: Games of Chance by Will Hahn

Games of Chance (Judgement's Tale, #1)Games of Chance by Will Hahn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

At 121 pages, Judgement's Tale: Games of Chance is a novella that paints for you the background of the Lands of Hope, giving you glimpses of the strange young man from over the sea, Solemn Judgement, and yet not telling you quite enough about him or what he's supposed to do. You meet unlikely heroes: Linya, Mhoral, Treaman, Haltar and Bildon - swept away on an unwanted quest.

Will Hahn's writing and world building is interesting enough to keep you wanting more - and that's the problem. There isn't enough in this book to keep you satisfied. It ends too abruptly, making you feel short-changed, as if the book is unfinished.
Maybe I'm too used to long fantasy books that I can't wrap my head around the fact that Judgement's Tale and its sequel, Eye of Kog, is going to be released as a series, with a new book (or at least part of it) released every 3 months. I'm not one for watching TV series. I don't know if a book series will be any different.

I guess we'll see.
