The author acknowledges that he is a fan of fantasy books, especially Lord of the Rings and this does show. There are points in the story where you can clearly see influences from other books. Writing something completely original though is not easy. It is original enough to be a book in its own right
The characters here are great, the story strong and the description of the locations amazing. In places it could do with a little editing but overall this is a great read.
