This came out recently for Kindle and I decided to download it for $2.99 and see if I still disliked it.
Those first few chapters, yes, I did. It felts like Lackey and Dixon were trying to fill space. But then the story livened up and it was sort of fun. Nothing like the Arrows or Herald Mage series...but ok.
The issue comes with the digital edition. It's full of errors - apparently because of the scanning of the pages. I noticed the same thing with another of Lackey's books that was recently made available for Kindle. I'm now wondering if my digital copies of her Arrows and Herald Mage books, which I bought last year but haven't read through yet, are also full of errors.
Mercedes Lackey is near the top, if not the very top, of my must read list for a very good reason. Her books combine great plots, great writing, and incredibly complex fantasy worlds. This book is one of her best.
Punished by his mentor, Justyn, for slacking off, he is sent into the woods one day to gather mushrooms, and his village is attacked by raiding barbarians. Darian is befriended by the Hawkbrothers (a tribalesque group of people), and forms a friendship with Snowfire, a Hawkbrother hunter/scout.
Together with his newfound friends Darian must find a way to free the village of Errold's Grove from the ruthless clutches of the Bear Clan barbarians.
While Darian's whining and self-pitying attitude can get annoying at times, I found Darian and his mentor Snowfire believable. I especially liked Snowfire and the other Hawkbrother characters and would like to learn more about him. I admit, I was pleased to read about a character that was not a herald, and it was nice to learn how some of the more provincial characters view things. I am anxiously looking forward to reading to picking up a copy of the sequel! Great Work MS. Lackey and Mr. Dixon!
