Wendell is a young man who learns what his potential is while on a strange, enchanted world with a funny old wizard and ugly troll to mentor and guide him. Prelude to a Hero, the debut book about how Wendell came to be the one expected to save an entire world. . . by accident.

Quirky, unique and oh so funny. That's how I would describe Prelude to a Hero. This book is an intruduction to the awesome tale in which an awkward boy has to save the blue residents of a far away planet from evil. This debut novel is a epic story that will leave you craving for more.

The writing in Prelude to a Hero was incredible. The narrating and inner thoughts of Wendell (the main character) were really amusing. You know that awkward guy who never tries to be funny, but everything he does and says just becomes hilarious? Wendell is that person.

Now, for some reason the first chapter was really hard for me to get trough. I couldn't get a grasp on who the characters were and what was happening. I don't know if it was becuase I wasn't in a reading mood or something. But the next chapter, the one in which Wendell is introduced, drew me into the story and made me wanting to read more. So if you have a hard time geting through the first chapter, please don't stop reading. Because if you do, I'll feel sorry for you since you've missed a books this wonderful.
