The story follows a young thief Mycah and his best friend Jerud as they try (and fail) to steal a powerful artifact from a local enchantress, who then spares their lives in exchange for them traveling to the Garden of Eden and stealing something there that the enchantress needs. Mycah is sort of naive and bumbling at times, but Jerud really steals the show. He’s a very warm and caring person, and he’s by far the most genuine of the characters.
The plot is heavy on mystery and intrigue, and the author does a good job of pulling you in one direction before sort of yanking you in a completely different direction at the end. The final revelations definitely had me looking back at the book in a different light than I saw it while reading it. While the pacing lags a little in the middle, the beginning of the novel is very engaging, and the last third of the novel made it hard to put down. Overall, a very clever idea and a solid effort by this author.
No story spoilers here, but I will mention one thing I did not expect--but enjoyed quite a bit--was the light, humorous, and often quite funny banter between the two main characters, Mycah and Jerud. This, I thought, made their long journey to the Garden of Eden more engaging. I also liked how new characters, like Cam, were gradually introduced and craftily woven into the story as the adventure developed. And the Stormqueen was just hilarious! Overall, the tale is well written, and I dare say that in some sections near the end of Mycah’s journey, the story reminded me of some of the best vintage writing by Arthur C. Clarke, e.g., in Rama or Rendezvous with Rama! Greatly entertaining book.
