Becoming a Druid by Mike Mollman

Today, I have my review for Becoming a Druid by Mike Mollman. Since I love Celtic mythology and folklore, I was thrilled when I got the chance to review this book. How could I not be? To be honest, I actually don’t know as much about druid lore as I’d like, but I loved Mollman’s take on them in this book. But keep reading to find out more about what I did and didn’t like in this book!

To begin with, I enjoyed the plot of this book. It had a lot of different threads that came together, and I loved how it all played out. In particular, I liked that the plot became more complex as the book went on; in the beginning, it seems like Grahme just has a simple quest to complete, but it only grows more complicated from there.

I also enjoyed all the different characters involved in the story. Grahme himself, of course, was well-written, and I liked his characterization. He had a sort of fluidity; he was equal parts serious and light-hearted, with different sides of his character coming out at different moments. All in all, I loved reading about him and his adventures.

As for the side characters, while I do think some of them could have been given a little more depth, most of them were very well-written. Honestly, I don’t think I could pick a particular side character I liked more than the others; they all had things I loved about them and contributed their own uniqueness to the book.

Finally, I can’t end this review without talking about Mollman’s presentation of the druids and druidesses. As I mentioned before, I liked his take on them. They had a lot of different interesting abilities, most notably their power to transform into different animals. But aside from that, I just loved how much detail Mollman put into everything. I fully understood all the different aspects of their order and how things worked, and I appreciated that.

TL,DR Recommendation
So, in the end, I recommend checking this one out! If you’re a fan of fantasy, then you’ll most likely enjoy this book. It has excellent world-building and an enjoyable plot, in addition to a lot of other amazing elements. And since this is just the first book in the series, I can’t wait to read the future installments and find out what happens next!
