Neither side is willing to tell him anything, as the war unfolds he leans towards his home country because of loyalty. But from the beginning he's trusted the "bad guys" due to how they operate.
He bumbles through the story without any idea what's going on trying to do what's right while two major powers try to manipulate him.
I think the story was done pretty well, except nothing is explained to the reader and the main character doesn't ask very good questions most of the time... 4/5
All in all I enjoyed it and am looking forward to book 2. Which is frustrating as the authors website states book 2 as 100% done but no release date that I can find. =(
The story is fun and only takes a week. I wish I could better picture the layout of the valley (which is vital in the final climax).
There were too many redundant names. Why do Fast Rollers and Boulders and granite petralists and cursed all mean the same thing? Why have three names? Yes, there are two nations, but just make them use the same vocabulary. With that, I was lost for 90% of the book as to why Connor thought people from his society were magically cursed, but if they grew up on the other side of the mountains, magic was a blessing. Turns out, another character asked him the same question. Our upbringing shapes our ideas about life, I suppose.
Eat rocks! What a great insult. Except to Hamish and Verena and that one guy.
So, there were four beautiful girls Connor's age. He somewhat liked one and really liked three. I think all four of them really liked him. It was a bit much. It got awkward (that was Shona's fault).
Flying! On an oven, on a rock, up a cliff, in some water, with a stone pedra, the characters got to fly. So fun. Oh, and smashing boulders and explosions and a failed hanging and setting things on fire. The powers seem random, but it makes sense by the end.
Oh, the end! I love that Connor got to be clever and work with people the way he did. It was just about perfect.
The plot was twisted good. Now, I don't like books where the main character is torn and unsure which is the good side and which the bad side. For some reason, this didn't feel like that sort of book. We have Connor and his village caught between two armies. The armies are both bad with some good people. Connor and his village is its own third side just trying to survive and drive everyone away, whether through fighting or honest negotiations.
Isobel and Cinead were just so petty and dumb. Are people really that power hungry they'd betray their entire village?
Definitely reading the next one. Highly recommended (unless you have work tomorrow).
