I have mixed feelings about the book. It is enjoyable and definitely well worth the money. The use of psychic or psionic powers throughout the book is one of the things I liked. The authors explain how the powers works and detail their use in a clear manner.
The background and both worlds (Earth and Otharia) are well thought out. The book is rich in detail that adds to the narrative. At the beginning of each chapter, there is a snippet of historal text and background material. Some might prefer to have this information come up during the course of events. I didn't mind it but I will admit that it did take a little getting used to. The only downside to this format is that it made navigating the book slightly harder on my Kindle. You could not use the controller to skip to the next chapter or go back to the previous one. Even if you could, you would end up skipping the introductory text because the chapter heading appears after the text. There is also no table of contents.
The characters are fleshed out and came alive for me but there were a few who seemed one dimensional. As for the storyline, I found it interesting. As the book progressed, I was drawn deeper into the story. I was able to overlook the minor problems I had with the writing style. Sometimes, the story didn't seem to flow and transition well from one scene to next. It might be because this is a collaboration which is understandable. Collaborating on a book is sometimes more difficult than writing it all by yourself.Read more ›
Written by the collaborative team of Debra L. Martin and David W. Small, this fantasy tale is highly imaginative and quite engaging. The authors transitioned to new settings and events by beginning each chapter with a "quote" from the "Chronicles of Otharia." It is in this way the readers are introduced to the rules and customs of the Otharian people. Each quote is paired well with a chapter that demonstrates the quoted information. I found this to be a really effective way to prepare us for what was to happen in the chapter, and supply us with information without having to spell it out in the narrative. It helped tie together a story that was somewhat lacking a smooth flow in events and storyline. The writing, overall, seemed somewhat inconsistent to me, almost as if different parts were written by different authors.Read more ›

Fun read. The plot may be predictable at times, however it sets up a good foundation for a series. Th characters were standard of this genre but rather likable. Read morePublished on December 27, 2011 by Avidreader
