Like other readers, I got a little tired of the constant observations and repeated descriptions. Hoards of long paragraphs just repeated information in different words (or sometimes the same words) were stuck in all over the book. I felt like it should have been a quicker read, but the repeated info slowed down the story for me and made it difficult to read.
I also would have given it 4 stars, but I was not fond of the ending. The teaser for the next book in the series wasn't enough, and left me wondering what happened when she opened the door. The ending could have been a little stronger. I prefer a book in the series that doesn't land with "to be continued" in some way. I would have liked to see this book stand alone, with the reader wanting to read more of the characters in the following books. Sadly, because of the ending and the confusing teaser, I don't care to finish the series.
Overall, though, this is a decent book and the author has done a beautiful job laying out a story. My suggestion is leaving out all the useless info.
I have been reading fantasy-scifi for more years that Moira has been alive, I suspect, and caught many authors very early in their careers, often with their first book. (Among those were Anne McCaffrey, Katherine Kurtz, Patricia Kennealy, Guy Gavriel Kay, and Stephen Donaldson.) I predict that Moira Katson will be among them in another year or two. Already her stories compare favorably with the early books of those authors...and the maturing of her writing between Mahalia and Shadowborn is truly amazing. I can't wait to begin Shadowforged.
The plot in book one of the trilogy is intriguing and unpredictable in a good way. The characters are well-drawn with unrevealed depths. I don't want to spoil the story by sharing too much, but I want to commend the depiction of the relationship between Miriel and Catwin. The reality of the hurt and hope with which they both wrestle as they move toward trust provides a strong undercurrent to this volume.
