And something else comesAn independent novel set in the world of Hawklan. Life is good for Farnor Yarrance. It is good for everybody in the valley. And has been for generations. So much so, that few ever feel the need to travel beyond it -- over the hill. And no one ever bothers to enter it from beyond. Until one day, they do. Men come from the south, haunted and pursued. And something else comes, silent and awful, from the north. With their arrival, an ancient corruption, festering slowly in the midst of the community, blossoms into a menace that threatens not only the valley but the land beyond, and the lands beyond that. Only Farnor, scarcely a man yet, has the power to oppose this menace, though he is unaware of it, his own soul clouded with bitterness and anger at the terrible tragedy that events now inflict on him. Not until he is pursued into the Great Forest to the north does he gradually learn the extent of his own power. And the truly terrifying nature of the forces he must face......

    Now here's a rare story that nobody talks about. Farnor is a typical long and winded epic fantasy that I found myself skimming through most of the time, but it definitely has a lot of charm. Many times I wanted to give up on the book, but there was something about the warm writing that kept pulling me back in... I dunno. This book isn't for everybody, but if you like epic fantasy as much as I do, than by all means give this book a chance... if you can find a physical copy.

    Having first read this book in 1999 I decided to reread Farnor. This was the first Roger Taylor book I read. I enjoyed it on the first reading and still like it. My only problem with the book was one character, Marna. She grates somewhat. Besides this, Taylor has a good grasp of timing and the eponymous hero does not suddenly develop staggering powers. In this sense it is a bit of a slow-burner. .
