Erich's Plea (The Witchcraft Wars, #1) - Tracey Alley,  Geoff Armstrong,  Angela Armstrong Disclaimer: Not really a review since I didn't really read it. Obtained the book as a free Kindle download.

When the map of the invented world is lodged sideways and the print on it is hard to read anyway, that's not encouraging.

Opening is a lot of backstory; writing style is less than stellar. Could have used a lot of editing, critiquing before publication.

Can't evaluate story; didn't get that far into it. Not high on the TBR list.
