This book is very imaginative, the author paints a very detailed image of the characters and the setting, a bit slow going but the books in this series are hard to put down once you begin reading. I find myself still thinking about the characters long after I've read the books!!

A decent book. It seems almost as if this is the authors first foray into the world of writimg, so the first couple of chapters dont really flow all that well, but he seems to hit his stride around the second third of the book, and it holds interest fairly well from there on. The characters arent anything special, not being overly well developed, and where the protagonist's power comes from isnt well explained. We find out it comes from a comet, but we dont know why, or if it has anything to do with a higher power or what. All we know about is a prophecy and a power that appears with a comet that only she can tap into. The world is well drawn out and believable though. The motivation of the bad guys isnt understood in this book either. Its certainly not a bad book, but it could have been better. Ita worth reading if you are bored and looking for an ok free book.

If you like fantasy, you will most likely like this book. Brian has a pretty good tale going, although the beginning is a little bit dry. I did struggle past the first chapter and found myself a little bit lost at first by what he was trying to convey with his scene on the comets. The reader will eventually find out what the comets are all about later on in the book. It does have a pretty good hook after the second chapter and I was late getting back to work on a few occasions. I just didn't want to put this book down after I got past the gritty stuff. The ending is kind of a cliff hanger but I was satisfied enough with the ending to give this book four stars. I will even be reading the next book in the series. (I did like it that much.) 4 out of 5 ****

I have read all three books in the series and have heard rumor this author is working on another in this series. I can't wait.

Though it started out slow as you got into the speed picked up. Have read the first one and I'm in the middle of the second. Can't wait to read the third.

Read the whole series, I hope the author continues on...very interesting plot, back story, etc...a bit slow in a couple spots but it definitely picks up. Some parts could have been explained a little better but overall good read, great series. You really get attached to some of the characters! I really recommend if you like a good fantasy, sci fi...

Looking for something good to read. This trilogy is the thing. I really enjoyed the books. Well written and unpredictable. A bit of scifi and adventure.

I saw mixed reviews so thought i would give it a try hoping i would be on the side that loved it. Sadly that was not the case. I could not get through it at all. I finish books even the ones i cant stand. I gave up on this one about half way through. Very dissapointed

Didn't like. Was very slow to start. Parts seemed disconnected.

I really liked this book. Its not a really long read but it kept my attention. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. The characters were fairly well developed and the author keeps you guessing about certain things throughout the book.

Worth 3.5 stars but can only choose whole number. The book had an interesting background premise; how would you react to an age old prophecies fulfilling in your lifetime? I will read further in the series.

Excellent fantasy/fiction book. As an adult I loved it, and I love that I've found another series of books that I can read to my kids!

The story line had possibilities, but the characters weren't very likable and descriptions of action and travel were poor
