Vallidin - J.R. Brule I downloaded the free Amazon sample. Two pages was enough to tell me this author doesn't yet know how to write well enough for any genre, and certainly not for heroic fantasy.

Basic writing style is stiff and awkward, with many sentences that contain internal inconsistences. When the writing is that bad on the micro level, even the best story will never be well told.
