    Absurdly simplistic prose leaves much to be desired

    I promised myself that I would finish reading this before reviewing it, but seeing as how I have put it down and tried to regain interest in it three times, I have serious doubts that I ever will.

    I was a creative writing major in college, and "Show, don't tell" was pounded into me over and over. I dont think this author got that memo. The writing is done at such a basic level that it must be written for a very young audience, except that the novels by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson that I got for my seven year old daughter are actually well written.

    I was looking for something light and fun, having just finished Patrick Rothfuss' amazing Name of the Wind and Wise Man's Fear, and this qualifies...as light, anyway. Light on depth, light on quality prose, and light on anything worth spending time or money on. This might entertain a tweener who is just discovering fantasy for the first time, but I am very, VERY surprised that this book has positive reviews at all...

    ...which is a shame, really. The story, while simple, had potential. Its too bad that a quality author didn't give it a shot first.
