TERRIBLE PROSE TUESDAY: Pronunciation was not a consideration

Fantasy novels have foreign, ancient languages. Tolkien INVENTED an entire language to write The Lord of the Rings. I can’t begrudge fantasy for occasionally hard-to-pronounce words based on medieval culture(s).

Eyes of War takes it a step too far. I have never tripped over so many words in my life.

I should probably pick a new book to mock. I might have some opportunity in the next few weeks.
