I found the characters well developed, and complex (in a good way).
The plot is unique and unusual. It is not easy to explain, but does unfold nicely as one reads through the book. I am trying to avoid spoilers, so I do not want to give too much away.
Dialogue is well written and each character has his or her own voice.
It took me a bit to "get into" the book, but that might be because fantasy is not my favorite genre. Some might call this "high fantasy" but I am never quite sure where the lines are on the various types of fantasy novels.
Otherwise a solid book. My rating, A-
Due to circumstances beyond their control, a handful of strangers unite to search for a lost, mythical artifact. An artifact that is supposed to save their world when darkness returns. We have Carthinal, the mage, Asphodel, the priestess, Basalt, the dwarf, Fero, the Ranger, Thad, the thief, Kimi and Davrael, the Horselords, and Randa, the Duke’s daughter.
I must say, for this being the first book written by V.M. Sang, she did a wonderful job with the multitude of characters. Most of them had enough depth to keep them separate. My favorites were Basalt, Randa, and Thad. The Horselords I had a problem with, as I felt they were added to the story just to make up the eight. They seemed weak in comparison to the others.
The complex and vast world that Sang built is very descriptive and I loved some of the other characters and creatures that the group encountered in their travels. The plot did advance, but at a slower pace than it should have. Part of the problem was the chapters devoted to background that did nothing to advance the story.
As much as I enjoyed this story, there were too many issues to give it a decent rating. The formatting on my kindle was almost non-existent. There were also problems with punctuation errors, and a lot of redundancies in the writing. These are issues that most first time writers encounter, and they can be resolved. Especially as they hone their craft.
All-in-all, I had a good time with this story, and I look forward to seeing where the quest takes them in the next installment. If you love world-building and fantasy games, you’ll enjoy this story. I give it 3.5 feathers and round up to 4.
