The story revolves around two young people, Terasa and Conall, who struggle to find their own myths, their own paths through life, though there are additional memorable characters who are critical to the myth story. Part of Terasa’s task is to uncover the secret mysteries of her past, her father, while Conall initially becomes part of the dragon riders of the lair, replete in all its brutality and savage mistreatment of the noble dragons. More of the plot, I won’t reveal, but I do love happy endings. (Hint.)
The tale is very well told. I enjoyed how slowly all of the many pieces of the puzzle were revealed, forming a whole. Note, this is not one of those highly action-filled novels, rather the author is carefully crafting an entire world for our pleasure.
The author has an amazing command of the written word. Every paragraph is filled with highly descriptive words, painting a fascinating world for your imagination to grasp; lush and rich descriptions abound. Reading this novel is like staring at one of those incredibly detailed and realistic Renaissance paintings or, if you prefer, listening to a fabulous Romantic era symphony of sound. Rich and lush hardly begin to describe the author’s writing style. It is like sipping fine wine with every paragraph. This is not a novel to race through, but to savor the marvelously and carefully crafted scenes as they appear. Yes, the story is captivating; the characters, realistic, but I found the poetic imagery breathtaking. I give it my 5-star rating, for this is one novel that you will want to read and imagine...
Terasa and Conall are both intriguing in their own way, and while I was initially concerned that this would quickly devolve into a romance-heavy story, rather than action coupled with some romantic intrigue, Peach stayed true to his initial tone and kept the characters independent and interesting on their own. The dragons were probably the most interesting aspect of the story, as they were just as fleshed out and dynamic as the normal characters. I felt that this was a new perspective on older ideas, not necessarily revolutionary, but certainly entertaining. The rich writing and dramatic feel to much of the novel also betrays a maturity of the writing that I could definitely dig into for the future.
