You'll like this book... It is geared toward a young adult audience in that it does not contain scenes or sequences that are objectionable for any age. That said, it doesn't seem to lose any value for adults either. There is romance, action, and intrigue plenty. The novel draws you in immediately as you try to figure out the deepening mystery along with the main character, Ezra Sound. At times it seemed to me that I was going to predict where the novel was headed, only to be proved wrong. There wasn't a stale element of rehashed fantasy material either--the setting is a mix of reality and fantasy, but done in such a way that the fantasy world interacts and sometimes parallels our reality. Add in a few more tastefully done unforeseen plot twists, and I was ready for the next book to come out already so I could continue the adventure. I never saw some of the characters for what they truly were until the end--to my great surprise. Looking back, there is much more I should have picked up on, and if I read it again, I am sure I'll get more out of it. Good read!

The book started out interestingly enough to keep me reading even after I began to expect that nothing was ever going to be really explained -- and I was right. Nothing really happens - oh, there are plenty of battles and lots of driving around the countryside. There's lots of puzzles (which are never fully solved) and tons of characters and creatures (never fully described or realized). There is romance, of a sort, but you never really figure out what the two main characters see in each other, because they never really talk and are never honest with each other. The good guys win...more or less...but you don't really know why, or how, or what has happened to the bad guys. It's a pleasant enough read, but is never going to take the fantasy world by storm and if there are more books to make this a series, I won't be bothering to read them. I really only finished this because I'm too stubborn to give up part way through.

This book is awesome. It's a classic good vs evil, but with some cool twists. It has a lot of cool ideas for the magic and other concepts that make the story original. It's similar to Harry Potter, in that it's about magic users who live in modern times. Unlike Harry Potter, the story moves forward at a consistent pace without an unnecessary lag in the middle. Ezra,though he has some learning to do, works towards finding solutions for his problems at a more realistic pace. The story is fantasy, but it's believable. The magic is used as a tool or a weapon, but doesn't come off as deus ex machina. I have recommended this book to several of my friends and everyone who has read it has liked it and we're all looking forward to a sequel.

This novel was a breath a fresh air in the fantasy genre. It hosts a great mixture of humor, suspense, intrigue, and of course, magic. I found myself rooting for the characters throughout their quest and laughing out loud several times. Although I'm typically critical of fantasy fiction, the first volume of the Ezra Sound series left a great impression and I would recommend this book to young and old reader alike. Although new to the publishing scene, Fowler's debut novel is a great read and I look forward to reading volume two!
