This series is getting better and better. Maya is doing an amazing job of taking the characters introduced in Dindi's visions in the previous books and bringing them into Dindi's present. Plus she brought in quite a few new interesting characters, such as Umbral, a deathsworn warrior, and Amdra, the daughter of Vumo and Nangi the thought eater. Or the new star of Dindi's visions, Mayara, an orphaned Aelfae who might just hold the key to solving the fairy's riddle.
I really liked the fact that Dindi finally seems to be coming into her own. While she is still ridiculed by the members of her tribe, she is more sure of herself. While others don't see or sense her magic, she is able to use it and at least can see it herself. Honestly I didn't know if I could make it through the book if Dindi didn't at least get some sort of good coming her way. In the first three books she is beaten down constantly, and while I liked them, I kept waiting for things to start going in her favor.
I also liked how Maya expanded into even more of Faearth. We get to meet the Raptor Riders of Orange Canyon, as well as the people of the Green Woods tribehold. Plus I got to find out more about the Deathsworn.
I was drawn into the story. I have to admit though that I knew where the story was going. Boy was I surprised, and not just at the end. The real reason Tamio falls in love with Dindi, where Kavio has been. I thought I knew the answers to both, but when the big reveal game...Well one I kinda suspected, but the other...OMG, I was soooo off. But it makes me eager to see were the 5th book will take Dindi in Faearth on her quest to hold up her end of the bargain with the fairys. Of course it is another cliffie....definitely a bit more severe than book 3. ***Spoiler alert*** But she softened it a bit with a final vision of Mayara. It actually made me tear up it was so sweet. ***end spoiler***
So far this was one of the more satisfying books in the series. FINALLY a whole lot of questions about how Dindi's chromas were hidden and where they came from in the first place were cleared up
The only thing I really had questions about, had nothing to do with the story itself. I was actually curious about the cover of the 4th book. It's beautiful, no doubt about that, but it is sooo different from the other 3 books. It just threw me for a minute.
If you've read the other 3 definitely pick this one up. If you haven't...Where have you been??? I admit the whole cliffie ending of the first book was definitely a buzz kill, but as long as you have the second book handy you'll be fine. The third and fourth books continue the cliffie mania, but not as severely as that first one, and considering its a 12 book saga, I kinda figure the cliffies will just keep on coming. The twists and turns however in the story just keep getting better and better, I don't know how the author plans to keep it up for 12 books without it starting to drag at some point, but I gladly will keep reading to see how she does it.
My only disappointment is that I have to wait for the next book to come out! I love the storyline. The characters are riveting and by no means boring. As Ruth Reckling said below you get to that point where you are like "die already, fall in love, get some help." You get so involved in the story time ceases to exist! I started reading the 4th book last night at 11 pm (with intentions of only reading for an hour before going to bed) and found myself making myself go to bed at 5 am in the morning!!!
This is a must read! But make sure you read the other 3 books first or you will be lost.
Anyways, in this book we find the main character learning more about what has gotten her here to this point. Some incredibly impportant information finally lets us in on who she is. As always, we're left with the book ending, leaving us craving more. We're introduced to a couple new clans, some more fascinating characters, a plot that continues to thicken, and a moment of me once again yelling "Yes!" out loud. There's a wedding, a war (of course), a brush with "Death", the best of intentions going awry, AND some just desserts! Oh, and I have just one word: Kavio.
Now that i'm caught up, and dying to read Wing, I seriously hope it's released before this winter! I cannot wait that long!
Loved Root, love this series, you will too!
The storyline is so finely interwoven. I'm expecting more intricate patterns woven throughout the next few books.
Most importantly, I cannot wait until Dindi's true identity is revealed so Kemla can grovel at her feet!! LOL...
Ok, so get to it... :)))

Please fix. Thank you
Tara spins another great tale of Dindi and Kavio. Follow the couple into the Vooma and see where they all end up.
