The only think I can say is everything said the one portrayed as the traitor was once but was not at the end when the rest discovered that he was their inside traitor. So he must be predominate in book two. Give it a chance to improve??? That I s the question.
The Wind Rider's consist of two groups: Landers and Pilot's. Landers act as soldiers, whereas, Pilot's are more focused in the magical arena. They deal mostly with Air magic and are the one's who pilot the Karawan with the aid of Mergoran crystals which are considered the "lifeblood" of their magic. Mergoran crystals are highly prized and illegal in Tyr.
The Pilot Council consists of the following member's:
Galen: Junior-Pilot and is part of the Corovin clan. He is Assarin. They used Record Books to record their history and tattoo themselves as another means of continuing their history.
Margis: Galen's second
A man by the name of Leirn is responsible for the purification of the Mergoran crystals. However, his injuries are what essentially set the current quest/journey in motion.
Iago is the mystery man at Wind Rider Camp. His reasons for being there are unknown. He is Anzarian and Captain of the Landers. Iago is plauged by a guilt unknown to readers at the start of this story. He will lead in the journey to Tyr for crystal purifiers and will use the contacts he has there to complete the job and bring success to the Wind Riders.
Iago will be accomponied by his Second in command, Seargent Jonir, Halgeren(Hal) and Saalis; the last two of which were former slaves rescued by the Wind Rider's. Also accompanying him, will be Junior Pilot Galen and his second Margis.
POV's in this story switch between the main leads Iago and Galen. Galen questions Iago's secrets, but learns to trust him. He also questions his superiors choices for having him make this journey.
This story has a way of making you distrust everyone, which I love. It's almost like a mystery in regards to the betrayal at the end. I personally feel Margis has a hand in the betrayal but I may be wrong regardless of the facts presented.
I thought this was an extremly well written high fantasy. Although, Pilot's are mainly used for one thing, they have the potential to be more. I want to see how this story progresses. I absolutely loved all the character's. Hal with his superstitions and love of "Women"!, Iago with his complex past but seemingly good heart, and Galen with his doubts and power. Even Jonir with his steady presence. Saalis,however, seemed like afterthought however. I woud love to learn more him. I really hope none of them die. I will cry.
That cliffhanger at the end killed me. I want more! That was so evil Mr. Kramer. Evil! So exicted for the next. Highly recommend this book.
Oh I do want to note the story was extremely slow moving at first, but once they reach their destination, things steadly pick up with one heck of an ending.
