Where to start? This book is downright magical. So far from what I usually read, I was very pleasantly surprised with its parable-like storytelling. It’s got everything: adventure, magic, a love interest, an epic villain, and some profound life lessons. The writing is such that you don’t realize you’ve made it through half the book - it’s ornate and so wonderfully detailed. You can tell a great deal of effort was put into the creation of this epic read. As others mentioned, I too felt sad when it ended, completely vested in the characters and wandering plot. Gillett really gives the reader a unique treat with the story, and I definitely recommend you grab a copy today!
