With this story, the author, CS Anderson, sure seems to have no shortage of imagination. He takes a seemingly "been there / done that" topic and makes it new and original again. The idea of witches are sorcerers isn't a new concept. However, the spin that this novel puts on it makes for a completely exciting and original read. It's a completely different take on the concept.
This is a story of adventure, of finding one's self, and of revenge. For some reason, revenge stories always seem to really excite me. This one does well with the concept.
The only reason I give this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because there are a couple spots in the book where I lose track of which characters are who. When you're trying to tell an in-depth fantasy story with "fantasy-sounding" names, dialog can occasionally get confusing when you're trying to remember which character was named what and what each character's backstory entailed. However, the author did their best to try to keep it clear. I just found myself getting lost in the names at times. It's a small complaint that, by no means, detracts from the overall story and the amazing journey that the main character, Brendant, and the crew he meets along the way embark upon.
The setup was interesting, but the ending just took way too long. I think it made up almost half of the book.
I will not be continuing with the series, if there is another book.
Speaking of repetitive, character traits and probable outcomes are repeated over and over. For example, each time the wicked sorcerer appears we are told that he will be invincible and unstoppable after he acquires the final artifact. We get it already. Characters also do info dumps disguised as dialog or reminiscing. For example, Brendant describes in conversation how he and the heroine consummated their romance. No drama, no buildup--it's already happened. Would have been a great start for the next book.
Despite these criticisms, the book is an easy and enjoyable read and a good debut effort. The author has a wonderful imagination and I look forward to "The Blood Stone."
FYI, the book contains graphic violence of the video-game variety and very discrete lesbian sex between the witches.
It is lovely to see the Goddess represented in literature with such beauty. The way She is depicted and the way the characters regard Her is touching.
I recommend this book if you like epic battles and magic.
I look forward to the next book!

I really couldn't get into this one. There are a lot of characters with made up names which made it a little difficult to remember who each person was. Read morePublished 14 months ago by the pines

What could have been a great story turned out to be a story of alternative lifestyles. If the sex was removed the story line would be stronger. Read morePublished on November 17, 2013 by Kevin Smith
Too fast, too much going on, too many characters in too shout of a time. Would have been better if Anderson had stretched it out and not tried to cram the story as it was.Published on September 1, 2013 by Edward C. Barnes
