4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging fantasy; 3 1/2 stars rounded up December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm finding this a very difficult review to write because I liked the main story and the many subplots quite a lot but I found many things to be very confusing. A great many concepts, characters, and background information were dropped into the story with very little or no explanation given so I had to figure things out by context and I wasn't always sure that I got them right. An example of this was what exactly Shades are besides very evil, very powerful creatures and very important to the story. Also, there were too many occasions that various forms of the made-up word "Bernice" are used as an adjective (Berniceble), an adverb (Bernicebly), a verb (Berniced), and even a noun (Bernicetories). Most times it seemed to mean very horrible, but sometimes the meanings were more like magnificent, terribly, or even homes. Figuring out what was meant did sometimes interrupt the flow of the story. However, when I wasn't bothered by the inconsistencies, I found the characters' various personalities to be well-developed, complex, and three-dimensional and the dialogues were engaging and a lot of fun to read. I found the imagery to really capture my imagination; it was vivid, descriptive and very easy to see in my mind's eye. Overall, I enjoyed reading this story and I would recommend it to people who like reading about humans, elves, dragons, magic, etc.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review which I've tried to give.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elves, Dragons, Humans, Magic November 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a story that would appeal to teenagers twelve years and older. This is a tale of humans who were closely affiliated with elves, both dark and light, and dragons, large and small, who became close to elves and humans who rode them. Humans quite often made a very close emotional relationship with a dragon and was considered a rider and the dragon not only provided transportation for the human, but became its protector. A human named Scott had taken the kingdom by force a hundred years before, making it a better kingdom, with an elf wife named Pat, but then was attacked by a young human named Stephen. The story encompassed the struggles between these two humans with much warring and magic. This book would appeal to teenagers who like this type of genre. It is well written and organized.

1.0 out of 5 stars Comments on covers January 8, 2013
By J. Gill
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow, the photographer for 2 of the covers really likes BOOBS! Or butts. Or both. And these are targeted for young adults from 12 on up? Why have covers like these for theis kinds of books?? Is this really what you want your kids to be staring at? If my daughter were still 12 or slightly older, I'd pass up these books (yes, I'm judging by the cover) because at least 2 of the covers illustrate women with no apparent power (the one who shows the most skin is the weakest). No thank you.
