About a young man's uncertainty as he finds out he can do things no normal person can do. It is my favorite novel and once I was in I was up all night reading the end.

The development of the main character is extremely interesting and heartfelt. I read this book in two days, and i must say the only reason it doesn't merit 5 stars is because the ending did not pack as much punch as it might have.

This book has an amazing story line that continues throughout the series. There is an abstract quality to the story, which can daunt some readers; however, this allows the story to unfold and for the reader to really think about how things are presented. In some ways this is as complex fantasy as it gets, similar to complex sci-fi concepts. Tristan is complex in his simplicity, and as he loses this, his depth increases!

I really love Cj.Cherryth and her desciptions in all her novels, but I found this book confusing and very boring. There is great character development but the plot is too dry and doesnt have a fast pace. ithis book just moves much too slowly for me.
