My Review: I downloaded this one after discovering the author is local. Science fiction isn't really my thing, but this one is more like a futuristic fantasy. It took me a while to get into it, I really had trouble wrapping my head around the concept and for a vast majority of the book the characters are left in the dark, and you as the reader are also in the dark. It has a very interesting magic system that only starts to be discovered and laid out in this first book, but it is clear there is a lot more to come. You do start to grow attached to the characters, especially the sub-characters, Phaira and Theron are both fantastic and I look forward to reading more about them. The pacing and world building was a little rough but by the end of the book I am hooked and am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the series. My Rating: While it was a bit of a rocky start, part of that could just be me struggling with the sci-fi/ futuristic aspects of the book, I really have a hard time picturing some of those concepts. Once I became attached to the characters, I really became invested in the story. I give it a rating of Three Paws.
