Review:  I really just wanted a short book to fill the evening.  I guess that's what I got.  This was one of the oddest books I've ever read.  I didn't really like it and am disappointed since Margaret Weis is one of my favorite authors.  I'm not sure, though, why her name is on the cover since she didn't actually write the story contained in the pages (although she is the 'creative director' according to the back flap)....and the story that was there was crippled by the fact that it was so short and about half of it was (as the title implies) illustrations.  I could use this for the Fantasy Reading Challenge but I think I won't.  Like I said, it's odd, and I will surely read better fantasy this year.

Rating:  1 / 5
