In Timothy David’s The NPC, Deodin hadn’t asked for the life he’d been dealt. People interacted with him differently, and behaved oddly around him; even the mobs had it in for him. He couldn’t even buy the armor he wanted without being told to fetch, gather, and perform some outrageous task across the vast regions. Thus was the life of a sheyaktu, a person who can perform magic without words and gestures, a god slayer that the red mages believed was the very key to unlocking the truth of magic. The universe throws challenges in his way and sets him on quests, and once again it falls to him to stop the end of humanity, to stop the world from burning. But just because the universe asks it of him, this doesn’t mean it will make it easy; in fact, it promises to be anything but.
I knew from the opening paragraph I was going to enjoy The NPC. The injection of humor adds flair to Timothy David's immersive writing as he crafts this epic adventure. There are things within the brilliantly scripted pages that will have a reader, gamer or not, chuckling. The premise is brilliant, the writing smooth and immersive. There were times while reading when I laughed out loud, and others when I couldn’t bring myself to stop reading because I just had to know what happened next. As a gamer, I often find myself thinking in terms of player characters, those who can be recruited or play an important role in the story, and every single player character introduced in this book was written vividly and beautifully with engaging and distinctive personalities and traits that breathe life into them. This is definitely not a book to be overlooked, with hours of entertainment, adventure, and engagement. Add this book to your daily tasks; you won’t regret it.
