4++ stars. The greatest strength of this book is the depth of it

Great Debut Novel of a Promising New Fantasy Series...
I did find the first third of the book to be a bit loose. Not sure this is the best word for it, but I felt dropped in the middle of a situation with characters I was finding hard to connect with. This was corrected by the time I reached the middle of the book where a small band of old, and some young, ragtag heroes licked their wounds, preparing for the finale. This section is where Ahmed does a nice jab of developing his characters and making you care about them. This dynamic helped provide some punch for a rousing endgame that turned what would have been a three star review into a four star review.
I think Ahmed is a promising young author and I'm looking forward to reading more of his books in the future.

Liked the world created and the story line but...
I found that I did not connect to the characters as much as I could have. I kind of felt that they were too one flat. I did not have the emotional connection to them as with other stories. Also..they defeated the bad guy..but I feel like his motivations or who he was not fully explained or fleshed out...so defeating him had no satisfaction or suspense. So overall...it just did not pull me inWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
