 The Sword of Sighs is a young adult novel, which is not something I would normally read, but Greg James, who also writes horror as G.R. Yeates, is one of my favorite authors so I made an exception for this one. I am very glad that I did. The Sword of Sighs is a fantasy novel with well paced action and compelling characters. The story features Sarah, a young girl who is tormented by school bullies until she finds herself transported to another world where the bullies are much more menacing than the ones found at her school. She also learns that there is something different about her, and she is set on a course that will change her life forever. Even though this is a young adult novel, I think adult readers will also enjoy it. One of the things I liked about it was James' use of dream sequences throughout the book. Nightmare sequences are something he uses frequently as a horror writer and the more dreamlike sequences are no less effective here. It gives the reader a unique way to see into the character's mind. This was an entertaining read and I am looking forward to the next one.

I picked this book up this morning and have just finished it. It's written for a young adult audience, but it certainly held my attention. (as an adult male in his 50's) I think this book is 4 1/2 stars, as a few of the transitions were a bit hard to understand. There were a number of different kind of creatures, but Mr. James clearly delineated them and it was easy to keep them straight. The main character's transition from earth to her new universe along with the flashbacks were well handled. It was overall a story that kept my attention and pulled me in.

Quick, easy to read and sucked me in from the beginning. Has a feel similar to Lord of the Rings and Neverending Story. Two thumbs way up.

I'm the person who won't read anything if I can't get into it by the first chapter. This book is not one of them. Loved it. Sad that it continues through other books but that only means more reading. Rare to find books like this this good.

This was one of the most boring books I've read in a long time. The very title denotes boredom.
