I was surprised by how much I like this. I’ve read several books by Dana Marton and loved all of them. When I was offered a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I wavered and nearly said no. After being told there was no hurry to finish the book, or leave my review, I agreed to read it; that was back in April 2014 and now it is July and I finally got up the courage to read this. I read all kinds of romance but I’ve never read one that I would classify as a “fantasy;” I don’t even click on the free ones – they just don’t really appeal to me. I decided to finally read this book because I love Dana’s writing and wanted to give this one a chance. I will admit that it took me several chapters to get into this book. A lot of the terms were just strange to me but I kept reminding myself that it is a fantasy and that I just needed to go with it. I am so glad that I kept reading. I read several of the critical reviews and just don’t understand how people can leave such negative reviews about the book when it seems to me they just didn’t like the genre. Just because you can’t get into the fantasy that doesn’t make this a bad book. One reviewer criticized some of the terms used in the book. They made fun of the words “man parts.” In a normal, contemporary, romance I would find the use of this term pretty hilarious but I believe it was totally appropriate and fit perfectly within the world that Dana Marton created in this book. The book begins with Tera as an innocent young woman and ends with her being a confident, more mature one. Her journey to get there wasn’t easy but the story was compelling. I won’t rehash the book details but I am so glad that I kept reading. By the time I got to the end of the I want to read more about Tera and Batumar and was very sad that the end of the book had come. While this book didn’t really end in a cliffhanger I sincerely hope that Dana writes another book for Tera and Batumar – soon.

I love a good strong heroine but this one has a soft heart and kind spirit to boot that i think many women can relate too. This book was wonderful

She says she started the story as a college writing project and the prose renders that believable. I enjoyed the premise, and the story was good, but something is missing. If you like Maria Snyder's "Poison Study", this is a similar coming of age story. I like Dana Marton, but was a touch disappointed in this.

It takes a great deal of courage to survive in a strange and savage realm without being crushed by it. Tera, a young healer, snatched away from everything she has ever known and forced to be a concubine to a powerful warlord, finds such courage within herself. Her journey to discover the strength and power that lies within her leads her along the same horrific path that destroyed her mother. It also takes courage for a popular, established author to venture into a new genre. Dana Marton is a talented and successful romantic suspense author whose books have been published in seven languages in eleven countries around the world. Now, she is venturing into a new genre, epic fantasy. Her first book of the Hardstorm Saga is called The Third Scroll. Knowing Marton's talent, I eagerly dove into Tera's story, and was not surprised to find it elegantly crafted and beautifully written as well as a compelling read.. Anyone who knows Marton's Harlequin Intrigues will be eager to relish this exciting new direction for her fiction. Those who love epic fantasy will find her a fresh new voice in the genre. Do yourself a favor and read The Third Scroll. I anticipate that you'll be filing it away on your virtual keeper shelf.

Over all it was a really good book. It's a 873 page book, and the story line is drawn out, but well written. There were a few details here and there that confused me, as did the plot at certain points. The romance does come a bit later in the story ( try about 600 pages in or so ), but it is very easy to see coming (at least to me). Still, I can't wait to see what happens in the second book. Yup, theres more coming.
