Martin tells us that this is "before the first iron was forged" making the story firmly set in the Bronze Ag.
Martin tells us that this is "before the first iron was forged" making the story firmly set in the Bronze Age. This however doesn't just mean that swords (magical or otherwise), are forged from bronze, but also that the population, community and some of the culture is far from the pseudo medieval world of most traditional fantasy. This somewhat uneven style is likely due to Giftwish being Martin's first novel, and the fact that fiction aimed at a younger audience tends to not spend time on time lapses, though I did find it a slight disappointment. One major plus of the book is, though aimed indirectly at a younger audience, Martin is in no sense patronizing.

ahhhh what a wonderful book! I still re-read it from time to time. True, I am an avid fantasy reader and a big Tolkien fan, but I think Graham Dunstan Martin is a great writer, comparisons apart. But don't be fooled by the apparently simplistic storyline. I can close my eyes and see myself riding in the woods with Evan. Martin makes you go there, and actually care for his characters
