Demian's Thoughts: I'm amazed by how trivial this book feels -- its scope is so small that it really seems like it's one small scene from a larger story. It takes place in only two physical locations, and pretty much no matter what you do, it's over before you have time to care what's going on. The writing is pretty weak, the story is even weaker, and the illustrations are rather few and far between when you consider the amount of wasted white space in the book. The only thing even remotely interesting about the book is the inclusion of a mysterious monument known as the Druid Stone, the only real sign that this was written by Dave Morris and not a dispassionate robot.
