For $0.99 this book is easily worth the price, and my rating reflects this. I found the plot to be enjoyable and the characters generally well-rounded. However it is painfully obvious that Ms. Falbe lacked access to a professional editor. The writing feels awkwardly stiff and formal and problems with redundancy crop up with depressing regularity. These are problems that plague the entire series, and a decent editor would have made a world of difference. For the most part I was able to look past the grammatical issues and enjoy the story but there were times that I had to work at it. Any fantasy fan should at least give this a look, but make sure you like it before buying the other books.

The dialog and scene descriptions were very immature and poorly done. The spelling and grammar weee ok, but the character's thought dialog was not punctuated properly. Very difficult to read. I had to stop many times to reread entire paragraphs to try to figure out what the author was trying to convey.

    A little on the simple side

    I found the book to be just ok. Lots of excitement but not a lot of character developement. just not up there with Robert Jordan or maybe Elizabeth Hayden. I like much more depth to characters. I probably will read rest of series because I like to series to the end.

    A solid book!

    This book is great for those just getting into fantasy!

    Spoiler: this book started out so well. The charaters were well developed & it was going at a good pace. Then once they meet the Rys it becomes too predictable. The characters who at first were so robust become one dimensional. I read a lot of fantasy so this was an okay book for me!
