Great series.

Fun, Original, Entertaining, Fiction at its best! I have to admit that when I fist started this novel I had that sinking feeling that their was just no way it could live up to "Oath of the shifters". Oh how wrong can I get?!! I think if possible I enjoyed this even more than the first novel. Both are incredible and the absolute best paranormal series I have EVER read, but the second grows from the events of the first novel and although many years have elapsed, the reader does not feel left behind, so it gives this book every ounce of adventure and passion as it's predecessor and adds to it! Valerie Zambito has done a remarkable job with character and plot development. Much like the first book, "Oath of the Mage gets your attention right from the very first paragraph and does an impeccable job at hold your interest and curiosities all of the way through! I literally could not put it down, in fact I took it all on so quickly in the first read I immediately read it a second time through just to make sure I caught every detail and it did not become one of those books that slowly become a distant memory, just a name, because you read them too quickly (Although I honestly don't think I could EVER forget this or even the first novel!) This book does an excellent job of catching us up on what has occurred from the time of the Demon War up through this novel without using chapters of detail that drag out. In stead it carefully highlights pieces of the past through out the story. There is no doubt that it captures your attention and leaves you not in need for anything more, but defiantly wanting to know more of the lives of the Savitars and the people of Massa. An incredible second novel and one that could be read as a stand alone (although the history of the characters and struggles they have faced defiantly add more depth and meaning to the story!! The author does such an amazing job with explaining events and the island that even a new to the series reader could not get lost! There is even a map of the island included at the beginning which I think is great for tracking the journeys of the characters as you go! The details of their surroundings are so incredible it feels like you could be walking through Haventhal, Sandori Sands, or the Puu rainforest right along with everyone! I can't wait to get started on book 3!! I would strongly recommend these novels to ANYONE who enjoys magic, paranormal, good fiction, or just an adventurous read!

Like afew other reviewers I am extremely fond of these characters but the woman are a little lacking. This series is addicting.

Great plot lines...good story telling....interesting characters tho the women especially seem pretty one dimensional. Male characters much better developed while females in general are shallow. With better character development you could be on par with sherri tepper and nancy kress....and hopefully you are on your way. Let your women be strong and smart as most women truly are....

I don't normally go in much for this genre but boy am I glad I read this. I can't wait to get on to her Zambito's other books. The characters, plot and writing are beautifully constructed, and this pace is absolutely thrilling. I'd recommend this to EVERYBODY.

Oh Valerie, you've done it again! Two nights! That is how long it took me to read- it would've been one, but I didn't get to pick up until late the first one and read until 7 in the morning... only til 2 the next to finish! The story is AMAZING. Just like the first one. You want to know what happens, you HAVE to know what happens. The characters become part of you! And little Kenley! Wow! I feel like the character is not as young as she's supposed to be... maybe because she's a shifter? I LOVE her! She's a kick ass little kid! Can I have a Draca Cat? Please! I promise to take good care of it! This is a series for everyone. Love fantasy? Love magic? Love defending the world from Evil? Love romance? What about learning tolerance? This book has it all! The characters are super developed and rememberable, the storyline is developed and thought out. You can tell that Valerie has put part of her very soul into the words. It is a MUST read. VALERIE PLEASE WRITE FASTER! I have to know what happens next!!!
