    Why does almost every book reviewer have to compare his work to Tolkein. Can anybody review a fantasy book without comparing it to tolkein?
    Besides Bakkers books are so radically different than Tolkein in more ways than they are the same.

    hi,
    Canadian author Bakker's impressive, challenging debut, the first of a trilogy, should please those weary of formulaic epic fantasy. Bakker's utterly foreign world, Eärwa, is as complex as that of Tolkien, to whom he is, arguably, a worthier successor than such established names as David Eddings and Stephen Donaldson. Bakker creates an extraordinary cast of nationalities and races involved in an enormous holy war set off by an unseen prophet, Maithanet.:eek:
