The Horn of Moran by M. L. Forman, 376 pages, read by Melody, on 04/07/2012

The Horn of Moran is the sequel to the Mark Twain winner Slathbog’s GoldThe Horn of Moran is a very enjoyable and fast paced read.  Our hero from the first book, Alexander Taylor, has returned to his humdrum life in our world after defeating the dragon and earning his stripes as an adventurer and wizard.  He corresponds with a master wizard to learn his craft of magic while hoping to be called for another adventure.  He is asked by Bregnest, the leader of his last mission to go to Alusia to find the Horn of Moran that will sound for the true king and avert civil war.  The Horn of Moran is very entertaining with great characters and world building.  It is rather light fare with the standard fantasy repertoire of elves, magic beasts, and shadowy evil.  There are no great dilemmas or personal insights but sometimes a good story is enough.
