I purchased this book based upon reviews by friends who said it was an outstanding read. My book readings have not in the past showed any interest in fantasy genre. So I took it on to pursue something new to refresh my reading experience. To my surprise, the book took hold from the beginning to the final page.
The book was great reading and each chapter took on a new direction to keep my interest. The writing is clear,crisp and expresses emotion to enhance various scenes. One is able to understand the the characters personalities and follow them as they interact, grow and mature.
Even though some of the book's characters took on some supernatural powers; these powers did not come easy and had to be learned by human struggle.
In my opinion, the book is for all reading age groups. As senior citizen, it opened a new avenue for a great reading experience.
Give it a try.

While I enjoyed the story and the world building of the author I believe the target audience for this book is YA and adults who enjoy a storyline about coming of age; the tale is one of teenage innocence and denial of events before embracing action that pushes the plot forward.

Laila is the focus of the story. She is the daughter of one of the cities leading couples; Laila reach the age of citizenship and must take the test that grants her the right to remain in the city and the entry to adulthood. Terus, beautiful city of the Confederacy, home to the Artisans, Guardians, and Consuls. Something sinister is growing in her city and our heroine discovers the world is not as clear cut as she thought.

I prefer books with depth of characters but only Laila is really filled out. The other characters are wooden in comparison. The dialogue and level of depth is what you normally see in a coming of age tale, certainly satisfying for a YA audience. The inner conflict in the story has the normal fantasy quest and fellowship to assist the central character. Adults that like damsels in distress and a straightforward plot will enjoy the premise. The story flows well and it is easy to read, but not compelling enough for me to follow her next adventure.

Great easy read- the characters developed nicely and the story keeps you guessing and turning the page. I enjoyed the detail put into the fantasy world Jason created, it draws you into the story and gives it life. It's fun watching the characters grow into themselves and their power- Looking forward to getting to know Laila and Conner better in the book!

The first installment of a young girls journey starts off as a success in my eyes the story starts off a little slow getting to know the main character and the small intricacies of how the world works but after the journey starts I had to force myself to take breaks from reading I was hooked. Can't wait for part two of the series to see what adventures await the heroes.

Erratic story. But still would have been an interesting read if I hadn't become so irritated with the overuse of the word "child". Child, child, child, child, child, child, yes child, no child, come child, child, child, child!!! Insert "sweet'ums" or "whippersnapper" each time you see the word "child" and see how it grates! I started using "grasshopper".

This is a great read. I enjoyed the development of the storyline, and there are some nice twists to keep you guessing. The characters are well developed, and, although the story is about Laila, I hope we get to know more about Connor as the series goes on. Looking forward to the next book, Eternal Ocean!

I enjoyed this book, although it started a little slow, it kept my attention and then opened up as Mr. Gilbert drew me in to his characters and storyline. We'll written, I only have one complaint, the next book isn't out yet! Write fast Jason Gilbert! ;-)
