I have no real problem with that, as one of my favorite series growing up was the Belgariad, but it is nice to have a princess instead of a prince.
Princess Adele was so real and amazing. I loved her!
In fact, I loved all of the characters. Degura the dwarf and Harper the Ogre.
One of my favorites besides Adele was Llaine. Even with his troubled past he is easy to love.
The only complaint I could see some people having is the fact that it is a little short for an epic fantasy.
For me, I would rather have a shorter book that moves fast instead of a long wordy one that just has a lot of "filler" parts.
Even with it being a little short, the world building and character building left nothing to be desired.
There better be a sequel coming soon!
Written by a college student at the time, this story is absolutely incredible and masterfully written.
I can't express how exciting this book is. Once you start reading, you can't stop. Even during the lulls in the adventure, you can't help but keep wondering whats going to happen next.
The fictional world itself is extremely interesting and detailed. I sincerely hope there will be more adaptations because the world can easily be expanded and explored even further. Think of Westeross and Essos from A Song of Fire and Ice / Game of Thrones.
I was quite impressed with the character development which made you really connect with the characters although you may not particularly like them as people.
The fact that the author was a college student when she wrote just speaks to the inherent talent she possesses. I was very impressed by this young writer.
I sincerely hope this gifted author creates more books in the series and I look forward to reading them.
The main thing I feel sets this book is the cast of characters. The main protagonist, Adele, is a well developed strong female protagonist and I think that is something lacking in many works of fiction. She never falls into being a stereotype of female characters and really feels like a real person. I found her to be very relatable and could not help but cheer her on as she went through her adventure. In fact I liked her so much I wish the book had devoted an extra chapter or two to tell us more about her character.
The second supporting character Llaine fill the role of the honorable exile with a tragic past. What I like about him is that he could very easily of been written as a whiny, self important character who never seems to be able to get over his own problems. This has been a problem I've noticed with many writers. Troubled some how translates to emo for them. Llaine however, is instead written as a deeply troubled young man who is attempting to rise above his past. He develops as a character through out the book to attempt to redeem his past. While his past is a deep part of who he is he does not let it define him.
I would have liked to see some more of the supporting characters flushed out but the main cast is so well though out that you will quickly get over this.
There are moments throughout the book that can feel rushed, especially the final chapters, but overall I felt this was a very well told story. I'm really interested to read more by this author in the future as I think she has allot of potential.
Though the pacing of the book at times can be a little to fast I feel the setting, as well as the characters more then makes up for it. She has set up the foundation for a very interesting world and I can't wait for its eventual sequel as well as any other works this author may come out with.
Definitely worth your time.
