This story includes characters from under the sea, the water world. Unfortunately Alisha had very obvious problems building a believable water environment and characters living under the sea. She chose to concentrate mainly on the rest of the land characters and treated the sea "people" as secondary and in a limited format. Quite obviously the dragons are very important characters. But what happens in the story involves a water world and these characters failed to come across as believable. The antagonists are the water characters and their world. Neither was ever represented successfully and believable.
Unfortunately the fish world never really worked well, I always had the distinct sensation that the writer was not comfortable with the fish people which is a shame. She gives us occasional chapters sparsely interspersed with the main story. But whenever I came to such a chapter in the story, where she is trying to fill us in on the water environment and it's characters, I just didn't get pulled in. She seemed troubled describing this part of the story, an important part actually. The characters, the water world in which they live and attribute to the story, especially the sea people, are poorly described , and this hurt the story as a whole.
It's a shame that Alisha was not able to successfully describe that part of her fantasy. She could have made the water world and it's characters anything she wanted , it is her story after all, but she just never seemed to use her imagination to fully develop a believable world for that part of the story in the way she did so successfully with the land world and characters.
The story as a whole is great and I can't wait to read and enjoy the rest of the adventure. I do hope that Alisha overcame her hesitation in creating the water world as compelling as the rest of this story. I will read book two, but I be looking for a creative water world.
You learn quickly that Vahly, the sole survivor of the Earth Kynd, is the last hope and line of defense against the evil sea queen who is like, 36 seconds away from murdering everyone. But the only downfall is that where Vahly is supposed to be brimming with magic... she is actually barren of it. *gasp* To save her dragon friends, she must embark on an epic and brave quest to find out why she doesn't have her magic and from there it's next level intense. I couldn't put this book down. My poor kids had to eat cereal for dinner. Oh well, they'll live. BUY THIS BOOK!
This book has a lot of fabulous elements to it including wonderful characters and great chemistry between Vahly and her new ally. The pace keeps moving, although there were a couple of slower scenes, and the plot is interesting. The descriptions are usually good, but a few times they felt forced. I also felt that the dialogue between Vahly and Amona toward the end was too thorough, and to keep so many dragons fed on one large island didn't seem possible. I would be happy to read more in the series as Vahly continues her search for unleashing her magic with the swoonworthy elf at her side!

The characters were flat. They all had one goal, and Vahly was not written well… I felt no attachment to her at all, and if I don’t emphasise with a character, there’s no point in reading…. She’s the last of the humans, she felt out of place among the dragons, who had taken her in as one of their own. The way she was written left me feeling nothing for the Earth queen.
The humour in the book felt forced and out of place at times, like a common bar discussion went in to a fight with hardly any description except of what vahly was thinking….
I got bored quickly, I wish I could give this book more stars. But sadly, it didn’t live up to exceptions. I don’t like giving bad reviews. But if I struggle to read a book or get bored reading it, I feel one is justified.
Don’t be put off by my review decided for yourself.
Cant wait for the next in the series... Another brilliant story line from Alisha Klapheke.
