Overview

Every family has its secrets.

For 16-year-old Merelin Lindon, the only secret her family ever had was the reason behind her father's mysterious disappearance, four years ago. But when an old family friend gives her a small, strange metal circle that once belonged to her father, Merelin discovers just how deep the family secrets run. Without any warning, she finds herself swept into a foreign world mysteriously linked to Earth's mythical past -- a world with no remembrance of its own history, tottering on the brink of a devestating war with an enemy it cannot recall.

As Merelin begins to understand her own place in this world, she learns that her father may have held the key to unraveling all the mysteries. With the help of a fascinating and sometimes infuriating young man named Yatol, she chooses to hazard everything, to suffer things she never imagined, in a foolhardy quest to rescue her father and save his people.

But it may cost her more than she can imagine...

    Just Okay

    Not a real page-turner. Starts out well, but loses steam fast. In the middle, it gets repetitive and stumbles in the dark for a while. Just not impressed...

    Finally, a READABLE book from Smashwords! It may seem funny to have my first comment about that, but if you've seen as many error-laden Smashwords books as I have, you know why I started that way. Bralick obviously cares enough about her work to proofread (much appreciated!), and that care begins with her story. Merelin is better than your average YA heroine -- she may be clueless because of the circumstances, but she's not prone to the kind of stupid behavior that is so common for this genre.
    All in all, lots of action and suspense, with engaging characters (although I'd have liked to see more of her family).

    I was provided a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I really liked this book. The story weaving was nice, the character revelations were done mostly through show rather than tell, and the plot was original, yet connected to familiar and favorite classical mythologies - especially Tolkien's. I enjoyed the level of action and the interpersonal relationships that were developed in the story, and while there is an opportunity for a love interest, it certainly does not take center stage and it certainly doesn't turn out like you might expect it to...

    The only real critiques I would have for this book are these: the pacing is somewhat difficult to follow. While in certain parts of the story even the characters cannot or do not distinguish day from night, as the reader I felt kind of shiftless during certain parts of the story due to the lack of time cues. Also, there are some places in the dialogue where the smoothness of the story-weaving starts to feel choppy, because of unfinished sentences that didn't enrich the story by not being completed...if that makes any sense...and there is one revelatory passage in the book when mythologies are discussed that the wording is a bit confusing and difficult to follow.

    Overall, this mythologically rich fantasy story was a delight to read and left me wanting more, which is oh so important in a trilogy.

    Let you're imagination flow!

    I really enjoyed this book once I was able to let my imagination take control. It is a great book for teens and above. It keeps you on a rollercoaster throughout the whole story. It's ending is a little rough until you realize that there is another novel. I can't wait to start number 2 and take the next journey with Mele.
