    Blood Ties

    Pamela Freeman makes a nice transition from children author to adult fantasy with the first book in The Castings Trilogy: Blood Ties.<br/><br/>Freeman structures the chapters based on characters found in the tale. At first I found this a bit disconcerting and felt like my attention was being jerked about from one chapter to the next. Just I was getting into the character and scene the chapter ends and you find yourself somewhere else with someone else. <br/><br/>BUT, as I progressed through the book I found the treatment worked well and kept me captivated as the players began to become more and more linked in the story line. I believe Freeman's method kept the reading pace up and left me wanting to turn to the next page. A bit different but it worked well especially when a bit of back fill was strategically placed.<br/><br/>Murder, magic, gods, revenge, greed, lust for power and a motley band of would be heroes. All great ingredients for a fantasy.
