    To: Hated it!

    Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean others won't. I thought it was a good short story in my opinion. Could've been longer though.

    I loved this book and the entire Song of Eloh saga. I couldn't put it down once I started. Honestly, I would have rated this particular novella a 5 if it hadn't left me with a number of questions that the series hadn't answered. I bought the entire series together as a set, with this one as the lead book. I read the other six books trying to figure out who the people at the end of this novella were going to be in the other books. All in all, a really good series. I'm glad I stumbled across it.

    I have not read the two series' that this short book alludes to

    I have not read the two series' that this short book alludes to so I can't say much about that. As far as this story goes, I enjoyed it. It does make me want to read the others, even though this main character seems to be of little read in the other books. I connected with her and would prefer to read her story.

    a good book

    all the book 's I have read are good. Only one was disapointing, and that's because I did get the whole book. I do need to check into why I didn't . Thank you

    Shou D Longer, and why the punishement?

    It definitely couldve been made into a much longer book, which couldve made it much better. Besides the length, i thought it was very good. The punishment didnt make sense though! I mean, they pick her as the chosen one, and then punished her!

    Good short story

    This was a well written, compelling short story that explains the existance of magic in the author's other works. I enjoyed it immensley, even though I normally prefer full lengh novels.

    Great bridge to his trilogies....

    This is an interesting bridge to his trilogies. It is 55 pages long and worth it if you like his work.
