Jan 17, 2013Askaryl's Grimoire may keep younger readers enthralled - and on that note, I think it could be a great way to introduce technology-obsessed youngsters to the joys of actually sitting back and reading something - but I suspect that more seasoned veterans of the genre will find it lacking.
