Be immersed in a new feudal world!
i very much enjoyed the new world and the various "new" races we are getting to know.
quick-witted and fun with interesting and loveable characters - and of course the perfectly hateful villains as well!
i thought that earlier on in the story there was a lot of explanation which i'm not so sure a child might want to go through - but as this is both very helpful and actually well integrated into the action - it's not a problem.
am soooooo looking forward to book 2 - will be one of the first to buy i'm certain!
Then there are the names of people and nations. One name stood out above the others: Erixonites. While the spelling has been changed, it sounds way too much like Ericsonites. Ericson, is a Norse name. “Ites” is a suffix which has been used in naming tribes from the Middle East since the Bronze Age. Semites and Israelites are but two examples.
The world-building of this story seems to have been chosen from a grab-bag of various myths and names. This could make a great High Fantasy novel, but it must lose its references to earth mythology. It can still have were-foxes, giant wolves and other creatures, as long as the names aren't directly related to known and established myths.
Last but not least: female foxes in this book are constantly referred to as vixens. I see this as a potential PC nightmare and may also confuse readers. In the phrase “true to her vixen nature,” does the author mean her female fox nature, her angry and unpleasant nature, or her sexually attractive nature? The book also lacks consistency in this area as male foxes are never called “raynard”, neither are young foxes called “kit”.
