This book uses TERRIBLE vocabulary! It's like the author didn't bother to review the first couple chapters; and if they did well they missed a lot of mistakes! That aside I still enjoyed it very much, it was very evenly paced and flowed perfectly for the most part. If you have been following the comics you will notice some of the story from there play into the book; it adds some excitement for people who are actively following the "movie prequel story's". This book doesn't do much to detail the story's surroundings or background characters so much is left to the imagination. What it does do is develop Tempest Shadow's character and it does this well! Forget about Twilight (I am lost as to why she's even on the cover since she never shows up in the story) and any other character you might be familiar with, Tempest is the star of this book and her character is tragic. It goes into how she lost her horn, how she became a fighter and more importantly how she became alone. From what the book suggests she has been on her own for years, trying to find some small sliver of hope in starting a new life but in reality she is her own worst enemy. This is what makes the story so relatable to readers, yes we probably seen this a hundred times over in books but it's a bit refreshing to see a kind of character like this in the purist sense of the word. A couple other characters you will see that the book gives some credit to is Grubber and Storm King. Grubber's character is odd, when he first interacts with Tempest he comes off as a cunning and quick-thinking guy (im calling him guy because I don't know what sort of abomination he's supposed to be). Latter all those traits just suddenly disappear from him, there were several occasions where his wit would have saved him from trouble but he fails to ever show it again. As for the Storm King his character is pretty much an ambitious tyrant wanting to rule with an iron fist. He is a more interesting character, he comes off as a tough destroy-everything-in-my-path kind of guy; and he is. But he is a very fair and forgiving ruler to those under his command, I can't help but feel good towards the guy sometimes. In summery it was well worth the read and it's pretty short too, I would say the average person would be able to finish this within 2 hours. If your following the movie prequel or are planning to see the upcomeing movie I cannot stress how much I suggest you take a look at this. When the book says prequel it stays true to it's name; im not worrying at all about spoilers for the up coming movie; if anything it will add to the experience. [Small spoiler, the book seems to suggest that "Tempest Shadow" isn't her real name!?]
