Ari was raised in an inn and becomes the page of a famous knight. It is enjoyable watching him mature and he is a decent, good-natured young man.
Sir Cadwel is the famous knight who started the book as a drunkard with his great deeds in the past, but when his skills are needed he rises to the occasion. He is Ari's mentor.
Larke is a minstrel who joins the two of them. His motivations are not so obvious, but he is always fun to read about.
There are also a number of well-portrayed minor characters and an interesting story.
On the down side, the book solves the immediate problem, but clearly is part of a series. People who like everything tied up in a nice package, will find a few loose ends here. Full disclosure: Summer is an online friend who reviewed one of my books. (I've never met her.) She is planning a series of three books with these characters, which means it makes sense to leave some problems unsolved. I find this annoying, but others may prefer to anticipate future books. I understand the next book is in draft form, meaning the wait will not be unreasonably long.
What I liked even more, was the fact that this book was so highly appropriate for it's target audience. I've read countless novels that were supposedly written for younger readers, only to have them be filled with sexual situations and references that many authors feel they need to put into their books...apparently their stories require that extra hype to attract a fan base.
Summer Hanford has proven she can tell a good story without relying on sensationalism.
Easy read and great characters.
I like the fact that once you start reading this book you can't put it down. You want to read more. The main hero's are Ari and Sir Cadwell. They are well written character with a very interesting history.
I like the fact it wasn't filled with sexual situations and It's fast paced and entertaining.
Summer is really a gifted writer and I'm excited to see what the next installment is of the book series.
