What a great book!!!
I was really impressed by it. This book is a set of three interlocking stories that begin way way way before the cataclysm, and end immediately after.
This is the history of the wild elves known as the kagonesti. The first story precedes the time of "Huma Dragonbain". The second one takes place during Humas' time. This is where any fans of DL. or, for that matter, anyone who has read "The Legend of Huma".
The Author of this book makes some pretty obviously flawed statements about Huma. The first and most obvious I want to point out is.. During second story, The pathfinder of the second story meets a knight of the crown. The knight goes on to talk about "Huma's Compagain", and the contiunued efforts of Huma to defeat the Dragonqueen.
Thats the error...In "The Legend of Huma", the orders only knew what Huma was up to, right up until He was lost from his scouting party..After that he is lost to them until his meeting of "Kaz", and the Silver Dragon. Then he is soon lost again after a magical attack by the dark wizards of the DQ..when he meets up with his childhood friend and taken to a magical tower, finally he is lost the final time after winding up at a small outpost of the orders. And he doesn't meet up with the nights again till right at his death.
Given all of that...how can this knight who meets up with the wild elf know what Huma was up to, when in reality, Huma rarely got a chance to do any reporting on his adventures, and when he did, it was only to the "High Warrior" himself. So how could this knight know what Huma was doing?
The author it seems didnt do his or her homework on Huma. This obvious flaw wont ruin the book. The rest of it is very very good..Definately worth a read...4.5 Stars...woulda been five if the author would have done their homework.... -Jon
