My complaint with the story is that it moved somewhat slowly. Specifically, the author spent time on details that were of less importance, but didn't spend enough time of details that are important. For example, I would like to know how/why Shorran was corrupted. Also, I would have liked to know more about the water people and Nyad. Furthermore, I could not really get a true sense of the size of the Nuruth and Chrysos. I think the only description relevant to size for the black wolf was that the riders were 8 feet from the ground on his back.
Despite my complaint, I recommend this book as a good read that is safe for young adults as well.
There is a lot of adventure in this book, with many battles, and I enjoyed how the story diverged from the typical with much of the warfare taking place between animals (and trees) instead of people. It had a Lord of the Rings type feel regarding the key (that has gone missing) and the sage who stole it; the key corrupts him to do evil and calls to him. The multiple clans and main characters from each kept the action going and provided a lot of history. I particularly liked the part of the story told through Miann as he relives his father's memories from 2000 years ago when his father and company were on a quest to flee the world of humans; a story that parallels his own.
The writing is solid and detailed and the author keeps up a good level of conflict, however I found it a little slow in the last half of the book. The story may have benefited from some of the more superfluous smaller conflicts/description being taken out. However, I feel I should stress this is a matter of personal taste; the author creates compelling storylines, I just thought there were a few too many.
On a side note, I would have liked more explanation initially when Amor sends Miann on his quest to the Old World--just a page or so. Miann seems confused as to what is going on and as a reader I wanted a bit more history at this point.Read more ›
I really enjoyed the deep sense of duty, responsibility, honor and respect that the characters embody and express towards one another. There is also a strong emphasis on the respect and reverence one should have for all of nature, not unlike some of the ideals of Native American culture.
That being said, if you just want to read about giant wolves, eagles, and a marching forest of evil trees all doing battle amongst themselves as well as others this is still the book for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review.
