    Well, in the realm of fantasy, I have to say, this story is well worth the read. Although the story is as old as time, Mr. Drake puts a new twist on the theme.
    The characters are believable and the dialogue is believable enough to draw the reader in. However I give it only four stars as the writer does as so many other writers have a tendency to do, he kills the favorite characters just as we begin to enjoy their interaction with the story.
    For the most part a well written and enjoyable read. Can't wait to see where the story goes from here.

    This is a real treat. A story that held my interest from beginning to end. Mr. Drake has a way of bringing his characters to life through
    dialogue and character interaction. This is, as I understand, the first book of a series. If this is an example of the series, I look forward to
    the rest of the titles. Although some of the beginning dialogue is strange at first, the language helps to give the characters life. If I have one
    complaint it would be the way Mr. Drake handles the characters. I mean, really? Just as I come to love a character, he kills them off.
    Overall, masterfully written and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this title to any fantasy fan.
