Getting into anymore of the story would start to give spoilers so I'll just say that when he arrives at the Capital under less than ideal circumstances his life becomes just as miserable as it was and he is constantly thinking about suicide to end it all. There were times that I really was not a big fan of Va'del as a character, but he really grows as the story develops and at the end I was left wanting to see more books about him. I really enjoyed a lot of the support characters, especially I'rone.
I look forward to the next book in the series, but in the meantime I will check out the other work by Dean Murray.
The downside is that it reads a lot like a first draft. I would have loved more character and setting development. There were also some distracting editing issues that took away from the plot. More than anything, the ending bugged me. It almost felt hurried and unimportant, but it shouldn't have been. It reveals a lot about Jian's character and potential and deserved more build up and resolution.
I finished it because it was good.
I finished it the day I started it because it was fantastic.
Totally new world. Magic and mayhem. New love. Cranky people, political people. Danger and triumph. I'm ready to read book two and happy to see a third!
There are some minor plot issues and a plethora of seemingly disposable characters, but this is a reasonably good beginning to the series.
I will happily purchase and read the next book, and would encourage you to check this one out and continue with the series as well.
Will it keep you riveted? Probably not. Is it worth your time? Absolutely.
I'm not sure how this book had so many positive ratings. It was utterly boring.
We are thrown into a world of darkness. NOTHING is explained to us. The author uses strange references to mark things like government, passage of time, which are wholly and utterly unfamiliar to us, expecting us to accept that we didn't understand anything about that last phrase or sentence, so we should just move on. The hero/anti-hero is a cave-dwelling "dark" boy with absolutely no personality. We know he harbors a deep secret in his miserable life as the bullied underdog. That's about it. He has nothing else to recommend him except his connection to darkness in a dark world. He has no inner thoughts of note. He has no epiphanies. He has no character.
When I concluded this was a world of mage-polygamists, who use magic with the help of magical stones, with a fractured society of capital rule over independent village-states, with "Guadel" who travel the frozen tundras in the service of the capital to find and recruit other young mages, I had no desire to read further.
The names of people and places are entirely distracting. While I don't expect characters in a foreign, magical universe to be named "Tom" or "Harry" I also don't want to be puzzling over how I'm supposed to pronounce something for minutes on end. Why the apostrophes? Why does every name and place sound the same? (Va'del, Guadel, something-el) Only Jasmin has the most decent sounding name and she is the only one with some semblance of personality. Maybe there's a correlation... Give an exotic name to a flat character to make him/her interesting.Read more ›
