Good beginning to a Decent Fantasy Series

Good start to this fantasy series. Not greatly compelling, and sometimes a bit slow, but no real complaints from me. I like the characters and the relationships that are forming, with developing bonds of loyalty and camaraderie. I also like the type of magic the godling uses.

No sex, no cussing. Some bloody violence, but not too dark. Sometimes the author slips up, inserting modern slang phrases, but otherwise, decent writing style. The author writes action scenes better than he does dialogue, in my opinion.

Here is an example of a vivid action scene, from book 6:

"Again the Ajagara charged, its impact this time causing large cracks to form in the pillar. One more assault like that, and Gewey knew it would collapse and his protection would be gone. He looked urgently around for alternative cover, but with the mist still shrouding his surroundings, there was nothing in sight. As the beast backed away for a third assault, Gewey crouched low, his leg muscles tensed and ready to spring..."

Solid gold narration by Derek Perkins.
