5* for Wotan's Dilemma by Hank Quense @hanque99 #ReviewShare #Fantasy #SciFi

Wotan's DilemmaWotan's Dilemma by Hank Quense
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My first impression was - Excited and a bit dazzled because the author indicates in his bio "I love rewriting literary works, legends and myths. I've rewritten (screwed up? spoofed?) a number of Shakespeare's plays including Romeo and Juliet, Merchant of Venice, MacBeth, Hamlet and Othello." Wotan's Dilemma got off to a good start with Fafner.

As I got to the middle, I felt - By now, I couldn't wait to get to the end. The characters were emotional, witty and quirky. I had a clear idea of the plot and but longed for a more comprehensive understanding of each character. The author is clearly well-versed in what he is writing about. His writing is accessible, clear and engaging.

As I neared the end, I thought - This was a delightful read that wrapped up well. I also think that for someone who is starting to read science fiction or fantasy books, Wotan's Dilemma by Hank Quense will be a good starting point.

My final impression and recommendations - I highly recommend this book and will definitely be reading other books by this author.
