Overall, a very satisfying read that left me wanting to devour the next book in the series!
Diffraction is an interesting read with all the requisite fantasy elements that readers will enjoy. The world, characters, and magic system are all very well developed and add to the overall enjoyment. There are personal struggles each character must handle, larger geopolitical political intrigue, and a supernatural battle of good and evil spirits going on throughout the story. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones and other similar fantasy titles this book should be on your list of books to read.
Until I read this, I had no idea I even liked the Fantasy genre. Skillfully written, some scenes are so vivid it's like I watched this as a movie! The characters are intriguing and relate-able, the unique plot captured my attention completely. I hope there will be a sequel!
The cast of characters are interesting. Each has his or her own back story with loss or personal tragedy. No one is a stereotypical anything. Each has their own flaws and weaknesses. Each grows in not necessarily expected ways. There are very few easy good choices.
I highly recommend this book.
Keep in mind while reading that this is the first book in a series that has yet to be released. Don't expect all the "loose ends" to be taken care of by the end of the book!
I recommend this book for both fantasy and non-fantasy readers.
This is part 1 of a series. At the end of this book I rose to my feet screaming at one of the main characters, "No! Don't fall for that! It'll destroy you!"
