  • Loved it!

    By LumosEowyn
    I thought this book was beautifully written. Yes there may have been some things that weren’t perfect but what I really care for is the story line. A few grammatical errors and spelling mistakes aren’t a big deal. It was a wonderful story with creative characters and I cannot wait to continue it!
  • It’s ok .... sorta

    But not great. If it’s just a prequel to try and get you to by the rest of the trilogy ( which I guess now includes a fourth un-finished book) couldn’t it have been a lot shorter and left out all the tedious predictable stuff? And maybe the main characters shouldn’t do so much dumb irrational stuff and make bad decisions. And maybe fewer miracles to save the hero’s or maybe fewer miraculous unbelievabe performances by the heroes to save the day, but then turn right around and do something dumb to get themselves in trouble again? It’s an interesting premise for a story, but I probably won’t read anymore of the books, certainly not if I have to pay for them, from the library maybe?

    By Guy in the Room
    I couldn't put this book down! It was an amazing world with such great storytelling skill! The author displays his own craft of words in this book to carry the reader through an adventure to remember. The magic in this book is wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to others!
  • Exciting and captivating

    By Tanequil12
    What an exciting read! It is captivating and makes you want to keep on reading to keep up with the events as they unfold. The sentence structure is unique and refreshing. You are not burdened with long overbearing principles presented in a convoluted fashion. Rather, you read the sentiments and feeling in simple terms, making fiction/fantasy seem real! A must read for any Tolkien or terry brooks reader!
  • Resounding yes!

    I truly enjoyed this book and I think you will too!
  • Odd pacing and writing

    By jeeberpow
    I like the story in general, but it is a strange book. Editing, pacing, even dialogue are odd. Almost as if the author is talented but young. Dialogue reminds me of a dubbed French anime. Girl wizard protagonist + pet dragon + kind man/fox companion screams anime fantasy hybrid written for teenage girls.

    The story and writing are great. The editing is not. But this is true of all books. Have we lost the use of writing in good form? Simple grammar and use of the proper words would make reading on my device so much more enjoyable. Hope it happens some day. But I really did like this story.
