About the Author

I am a computing archaeologist and fantasy writer. My work often includes archaeological elements and fusion of cultures. I have been working in archaeology for ten years and writing for twice that time. While most of my first works were odd ramblings of a teenager, my adult writings include fantasy that utilizes archaeological reconstructions of cultures sometimes on a theological scale. I spend the first half of the week cataloging and studying ancient cultures and artifacts and the second half taking that information and reinventing it into fictional stories, always with fantasy elements.

The biggest compliment I can give, is that this book is well written. The story of Luitgard was engaging, however the book was easy to put down and in my opinion was not a page turner. Although this would probably be classified as a medieval/fantasy book, to me it was more along the lines of drama. The action scenes were clumsy and made little sense, however the characterization of the people were excellent. The story was definitely more focused on getting to know the characters, than what was happening to them. However, the one thing that this book failed to do was to engage me emotionally. The overall story was good, but the ending fell flat on its face. Without spoiling it too much, let's just say that several of the main characters die. However, I felt no emotional attachments to the characters and so when they died I was let down and confused about why the author would go that direction. In my opinion, the ending was pointless and I would classify it as a Shakespearean tragedy, where nothing good comes out of it. The author did try to make up for it in the epilogue, but it felt like a half hearted attempt. Given a choice, I probably would not read this book again. Once was enough. For family friendliness, I would have to rate it a 2 out of 5, simply because I believe some of the content is inappropriate for younger audiences. I would not recommend that kids read this.
