The Orb of Truth (The Horn King, #1)The Orb of Truth by Brae Wyckoff

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I downloaded this book because I heard that it was similar to The Hobbit. Well, it does have Elves and Dwarves, and the main character is a halfling. And they go on some kind of quest. I guess that's similar. But J.R.R. Tolkien was a good writer. Brae Wyckoff, unfortunately, isn't.

I couldn't finish this book. It was painful to read. It really needs a professional editor. The grammar is so wrong I cannot help but wonder if English is Mr. Wyckoff's second language. If so, it is understandable, but I still need some serious editing before I will be able to force myself to read this.
