Also, one thing that is really bothering me. Twice now, it has been suggested in this book that birds do not see color. I STUDY bird vision, and that is just crazy. Birds have FOUR color photoreceptors (while we only have three). They see more of the color spectrum than we do. Please, do your research when writing about such things!
Wholly human or wholly crow depending on what form she is in, Zimp is a great character, both endearing and aggravating. At first, she is weak and allows a less qualified, but more aggressive clan member, Arren, to make decisions for her.
Brok, a shifter who is also a Thylacine, is also an interesting and vivid character. He is angry, and Zimp is wary of him. His brother is unable to shift back to human, and his tragedy is poignant for every doublesight, whatever species.
Lankor is a doublesight dragon, and is also a great character. He is angry and confused, unable to control his temper as they all seem to be.
Though they are being persecuted, the doublesight have many divisions and rifts among themselves, and must somehow find a way to work together to find out why they are being hunted. This leads to the discovery of a great evil that threatens their very existence.
This book is as much about personalities and the need to remember their own commonality as it is about the great evil that threatens their kind. Each individual is sharply drawn, and has presence, struggling for their own place in their society while their world faces calamity. Zimp and Lankor struggle to do what they know is right, in the face of treachery and occasional bad judgement.
I really enjoyed this book, despite the fact that the ending is a set-up for book two. There is some resolution, it's just not complete, and there is ample room for more story. I always have mixed feelings about that sort of ending for the first book in a series, but despite that one minor flaw, this is an awesome book, and I think it is one of the better fantasy books I've read lately. There is nothing stale, or been-done-before in this tale. I will definitely be reading The Memory Tower.
I found this idea fascinating and Persun has constructed a fascinating world. The problem I has was the writing and I wonder if it a formatting error on Kindle; there were sentences that I had to read twice and I find it hard to believe that an author that has written as many books that have been loved by readers would write like he has in places here. Sentences are fragmented in places and stilted in other; the order of the words make it difficult to read. I would have rated this much higher of not for this.
3.5/5 STARS: **I want to thank the author and/or the publisher for providing a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review; all opinions are mine.**
