BookLender review by Casey on 2010-05-04 13:09:15

I thought the whole premis was great and I loved the idea of the world being created but after that it fell apart. The villains are all one dimensional and are evil because they're just evil. The heroes seem to magically find everyone they need to win and everyone with the right mix of skill sets seems to come together. Also apparently if the world lost technology, all of the dorks that hang out at Renaissance Fairs will rule the world. Somehow soldiers and cops and such no longer know how to fight and hippies can now take them out.
