Synopsis (from the author): A young warrior ruined and near death is saved by Onja a mysterious rys female. Forsaking all that he was, he will take the name Amar and serve his new magical mistress. A lord among outlaws he will become, feared by kings and called the dro-shalum or curse demon by the common folk.
What I liked: As I said in the introduction, I like a story about the underdogs rising up against injustice and a good revenge tale. The book had both! The character of Amar (the name our hero took on after the battle that destroys his people), grew on me – especially as he labored to join the Kez. I didn’t like Dacian to start with, but he, too, grew on me. As one of the oppressed Rys, his attempt to integrate into the tabre society was admirable. Onja, the rebellious rys female who saved Amar (and Dacian), was a great character. I did like the way Halor (Dacian’s mentor) and the crow’s fate intertwined and I also liked the way Tracy Falbe wove the different threads of the story together. It made for a most enjoyable read.
What I didn’t like: I didn’t much care the character of Halor, who seemed to be a bit predictable and shallow. The head tabre (the Grand Lumin) was also predictable, which would have been boring had Tracy Falbe not balanced it with the intrigue of the rival Drathatarlane tabres.
Overall impression: Rys Rising was a very enjoyable fantasy read! The characters were memorable, the action excellent, and the pace kept me involved and interested. The plot is complex, with many moving pieces, and kept me wondering what would happen next. I know I will be reading the next one! Well done Tracy Falbe!!
My rating: 5 Stars

I've just become a big fan of Tracy Falbe. Great style of writing. Easy to follow. A book I just totally relaxed in and kept looking forward to my reading session.
In some sense it tackles the delicate matters of racism with a light political influence. However this is on a fantasy world level. A wee bit of romance in just the right places.
A great author with a great tale to tell. Looking forward to the next installment.
I'm hooked and can't wait to get the rest of the series.
