Some of the character names were striking. “Talfryn” sounds both dragon-like and very nice. “Jonny Bob” is surprisingly adorable, awkward in an endearing way, quite fitting for a snotling. For “Jurryt,” I felt strange when I first read his name; he sounded mysterious, like he was one of those enigmatic unknown characters in A Song of Ice and Fire. But later, when we got to know him more as a person, “Jurryt” started to sound cute to me as well. I also liked Talfryn’s mom’s and Cedric’s dad’s names, as they too have a look and sound that match the feel of their species.
The beginning of Talfryn and Cedric’s romance was very exciting. My interest waned a bit when they had their first kiss, but rekindled when they went through physical and emotional hardships. On romance, yes, one might wonder how you could fall in love with someone over just a number of days. But I think it’s possible to become attracted and infatuated with a person in that short amount of time, even if they don’t fall in love yet.
I found the transgender parts in the story rather intriguing.
A few of the minor plot events were somewhat unclear, however.
Nevertheless, the climax scene was excellent. There was so much emotion, and it was thrilling to read.
There was not a great deal of setting description, which is good because lengthy descriptions tend to bore me; but there was still enough setting detail for me to understand what was going on.
I found Jurryt’s past particularly interesting, maybe because his role is less clearly defined than the other two main characters’.
The scene where Hazel talks about food was lovely. I happened to be very hungry when I was reading this part, so this was a tantalizing passage.
I look forward to reading the sequels, since there are still a lot of unanswered questions.
I’ll admit, it does better on the former than the latter. There’s not a lot of world building involved and both Cedric’s and Tal’s banishment reasons are more hinted at than stated. A lot is left up to the imagination and relies on readers having prior knowledge of the way these sort of worlds tend to go. Which is understandable since it is a short read, but I would have liked a little more depth and explanation for both characters. And also for the young thief who seems to arrive out of nowhere, but does play an interesting role in how things eventually turn out.
The romance is sweet with both Cedric and Tal having their fair share of shyness and uncertainty, but they’re adorably cute together. There’s also some threat and danger from outsiders to keep a little tension running throughout. In all, I found it nicely enjoyable and would love to see more from all involved.
