The characters are brought to life. You are pulled into another realm and don't want to leave. The book is full of action, adventure, betrayal, suspense, and so much more, that you yearn for the adventure to continue.

Very rarely will I read a book that will emotionally connect me with the characters. Rarer still will that book keep my attention. The story in those kinds of books is usually just too slow. Young Falcon not only went extremely in depth into the characters, but also kept me hungry for more until the last page...which left me begging for the next book. The first 3 chapters or so, aside from the prologue, actually move slower than I prefer, but each page in those chapters is essential to the story and, more importantly, is interesting to follow. Without these first chapters, there would be no basis for the story and I would not have gotten to know the characters nearly as well. Deceptive "lulls" in the plot are scattered throughout the book, but do not be fooled. What may at first glance appear to be a slow part in the book could very well be one of the best chances to understand a character's motives. I came to enjoy and cherish these quality times with the characters. However, if these "slow" sections aren't for you, don't worry. There's plenty of action! Plus, the conflicts are beautifully integrated into the storyline; they aren't just randomly placed simply for the sake of having some action. My favorite aspect of this book is that it has so much variety. Forests, plains, mountains, countryside, cities; no two places are the same. Even better, the characters each have a unique personality. People that seem so similar turn out to be quite different, and people that you wouldn't ever pair together are more alike than it may seem... Overall, I give the book 4 out of 5 stars, not because the book left me unsatisfied; quite the opposite! I believe that this series has more potential and that this will be seen in the books to come. 5/5 ratings are sure to come with them! All of that aside, Young Falcon is a must read for any fantasy fan looking for a fresh, new story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
