    Brilliant

    When I read the title and saw the cover, I was expecting just another Tetraforce fanfic. I was certainly surprised.
    I'm familiar with all the Tetraforce theories, and I've even come up with one of my own: that the Four Giants are the Golden Goddesses' Terminan counterparts. I'm also aware that Nintendo has repeatedly denied the existence of a fourth Triforce piece. There's a lot of seemingly conflicting evidence for the Tetraforce, and it provides any author with the basis for a complex story.
    This book discards all that evidence, creating an entirely new story that hasn't been debated to death on Internet forums. I can't say too much without spoilers, but the author obviously felt no obligation to adhere to a single "side" in depicting this universe.
    I only have two complaints. First is timeline placement. The author assumes that Twilight Princess has the same Link as Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. The Hero's Shade is the OoT/MM Link, and the TP Link is his descendant. This is confirmed, non-negotiable Nintendo canon. Second is that it's written in the present tense. I can't stand that.
    As a final comment, I like how Link's role as a silent protagonist is handled. He doesn't speak, but it also isn't made excessively obvious either, and he isn't mute.

    A great fan fiction

    I loved this book because it kept my attention and kept me thrilled. This person was a true fan of the series by the fact of the happy mask salesman being described accurately, links past being told about how the events of majoras mask was viewed by link as an extremily realistic dream. I also loved the ending. That was a great touch. I just wish poor rift had survived. He was tricked by mai and didnt deserve his fate. Oh well, it adds drama. I did think its kind of funny that zelda loved link, illia loved link, saria and navi. That was pretty crazy. The writer actually wrote about something ive been thinking about. Links mental stability. He started to loose it. Who wouldent? Forced to go through about eight to ten temples, then kill ten bosses who are just terrifying and then (windwaker for example) in some of the adventures he has to kill four or more again in a guantlet! Not to mention ganon. Oh well. Its a classic story. Play the games and read these books. If you hate zelda, that is your loss. This is a great story and a classic series. Every single game balances story with combat, puzzle solving, adventure and wonder. How many games have you stop a moon (majoras mask) in three days and actually counts these days? Or hows about (ocarina of time) going forward and backward in time to undo the damage of accidentally letting ganondorf steal the triforce? Seven years back and forth, from a child to an adult and back again, seeing the effects of seven years. They actually do show the effects. Some people who were alive seven years ago are dead seven years later. Lets not even forget the classic original. In hyrule there echoes a legend of courage, might, magic and swords. A legend of wisdom, bravery and evil. In the land of hyrule there exists a single treasure that whoever claims it will rule hyrule forever. The triforce. The evil wizard ganon sought this treasure for himself but upon touching it, his impure heart shattered it into several pieces. He then stole the princess and unleashed monsters on the world. The inhabitants fled, fearing for their lives. However, a young boy took up the courage to grab a shield and sword to start his adventures. He crossed seas (via raft) and climbed mountains, slaying evil monsters to strengthen himself to prepare to fight with the evil wizard. Classic story. But whats unique is that this series is not just sword and shield rescue the princess, kill the wizard. You find several items along the way. (This by the way is for people new to this series.) For some reason there are always three items that you will find relatively early on in the game(except skyward sword. The boomerang i have yet to see and the bow came extremily late. Ocarina of time had the bow late too but they give you a slingshot.) The boomerang, bombs and the bow and arrows. Sorry. I like to ramble. Haters, this is a classic story and without the first game, you might have a sucky save feature. Because this was the first game ever to have a save feature. Im done now. Cheers!

    I'm not gonna give this an official rating until I've had a chance to read it. If it talks about Twilight Princess then Midna, my favorite character, must be in it. The last time I gave a book five stars before reading it, I ended up writing a second review and only giving the book three stars because Midna dies at the end. However, if this book chronologically follows the events of Twilight Princess, please tell me that means that Midna is still alive at the end! Still, though... I'm giving this four stars to start with, and once I've read the book, I'll write a second review and give it five stars, three stars, or one star. I hope I can give it five stsrs.

    A written version of Zelda

    I'm an avid fan of Legend of Zelda, so I was thrilled to see that someone finally tried to write a storybook version. One thing that I found disappointing: the story is written in an impersonal third person-type view - like the narrator only recorded the story events from the game. It would have been much better if told from the viewpoint from one of the main characters. But can't really complain since the book was free.
