I think this books biggest problem is that there is a lot of information given throughout it which slows the pace and when not all that much is going on it makes it a slow read, but that being said it is a short read and builds to something that I think will be great. This is one story that was broken into three novella. Honestly I think it would have been better as a whole story, breaking it into three parts makes this first one really slow.
I don't know what all I was expecting when I picked up Star of Wonder by author Tracy Higley. That is, I figured The Incense Road trilogy would be the road leading to the birth of Christ, but besides that, my space for expectations was pretty blank.
I was unprepared for the stirring adventure this story on the sands of Arabia becomes, something bringing Aladdin and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark to my mind. It's a story of heritage and the need for acceptance, of intrigues for power and position, and of a young, first-level mage's quest for "an object of power that could sway the course of nations." Granted, Misha-el, the mage, is more concerned with the object of power for his ailing mother's sake than for the fate of nations.
Now, I didn't get a full grip on the story's pacing. It was a bit difficult for me to make complete sense of some of the earlier action, as certain parts felt rushed or vague, but I also lost a measure of interest in the details during a couple of slow parts. Still, overall, I found this novella to be a pleasant, and rather fascinating, surprise.
I think, for anyone who finishes the first stage of this star-led journey, it'd be nigh on impossible not to want to go on to read the next book on the Incense Road.
I found the story fast moving, it kept my interest, rich in detail, and highly interesting. The story is called book 1 but I think it is more like Part 1 of one book. The story does have an adventure with danger and suspense and a resolution to that adventure -- but the story is not complete. There will be two more parts to complete the novel. This might have bothered me except for the fact that all three books/parts are immediately available and the price for all three is actually less than the likely price if it were released as a full lenght novel.
So for the 1/3 I've read, I'd gladly give the story 5 stars. That's a great start. I will qucikly read the next two parts and hope they are good as this part.
