    Great fantasy read

    (Non native english writer, hence the short review) Initiate is the first book of an (as yet) unfinished series. This leads to the 2 only (and minor) "cons" I found with it : a BIG cliffhanger, and as I enjoyed it greatly, some frustration to see it end.
    It was however a GREAT read, leading me into one domain of Fantasy that is not so frequently used : tribal/ethnic fantasy. The setting is indeed a mix between pre-historic, indigenous / aboriginal. This mix, while kind of dark and gritty (mostly in undercurrents) is enhanced by a highly faerical and lighter currennt, giving a great mix.
    The story in itself possesses the same balance between dark and light, adventure and some kinds of romance.
    As a conclusion, I must say that if Balance really is the best word to describe the book, my enthusiasm regarding it was far from balanced ...
    And the follow-up (which I recommend also) keeps the promises of that first volume.
