This story is full of adventure, magic, fantasy, and even some romance! The author paints absolutely beautiful scenery with her words. I felt transported to the world of Roan. It is clear that this world is very detailed in her mind. She writes with passion and conviction for her story. Although there were times I wanted the story line to progress more rapidly, I loved how this book flowed. The story archs for these characters were connected very well.
Another part of the writing I enjoyed was the world that is created is part reality and part fantasy. For example, we see characters playing a game of poker, but we also see Pyrus communicating with animals. We see Pyrus the "therapist" and Pyrus the mage who can use spells for all sorts of fantastical things! I loved this juxtaposition of modernity with fantasy.
The word usage and descriptors are fun to read. I was truly transported into this world. She created realistic dialogue for her characters. There were a lot of scenes that I found humorous. Pyrus's use of the Asher Zin as Hazel's fiancé was hilarious. It had me thinking of the movie Overboard, where an amnesiac (although not spell induced!) is lead to believe she is married to someone she is not.
I recommend this book to lovers of epic fantasy fiction. The reader will immediately see that they are in good company because Hampton clearly has a passion for fantasy herself. There are moments of levity and moments of intensity that make this story very well-rounded. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series!" - Literary Titan --This text refers to the paperback edition.
