I knew after the first chapter that this high fantasy novel with its complex world and characters had drawn me in. This fast paced novel centred on the awakening of an ancient power piqued my curiosity. The brutal honesty of the story felt true to the world that it is based on, directing the reader away from unnecessary distractions.
Hwenfayre lived a lonely existence until her journey began, taking her from the village that had always beaten her down into the world where she can claim her birthright. I was surprised by the twists and turns in this young girls path, I felt the wide range of emotions from the cards that had been dealt to her. On the other hand, Shanek always had all that he needed provided for him, until he was sent on a mission for the Thane that will change his worldview forever. I was pleasantly surprised by the growth in him, not expecting so much good hidden under his brash unfeeling exterior.
There is so much more than I could fit in a short review but I highly recommend the read.
