Book Review: A Merchants Tale by Michael Dellert

A Merchants Tale by Michael Dellert coverI enjoyed this novella. I still have problems with the names of people and places plus the use of local languages made me stumble through some parts of the story. The character narrating the story was developed through his personal observations, reactions, and dialog. I liked how the story was told as a tale told to another to inform the listener of the dangers of traveling to the area.
The group that traveled together with the merchant only had one other very well developed character, the acolyte. Even though he was a pretty well developed character and more likable than the merchant telling the tale there remains some mystery about him. The end was a bit short as it did not tell of their return trip which could have been another adventure. Still it ended at the conclusion of the travelers adventure on getting to their destination and concluding their business.
It is a a well written short and I look forward to reading the next books on this series.

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
