The story gripped me from the beginning as it is not like any other I have read. I was easily drawn in to the world of Alyx and Israel and found I did not want to leave it. I really enjoyed the storyline as well as the characters that were introduced and played their part throughout. This really is a must read for anyone who loves Fantasy with a bit of romance thrown in. This book has it all; action, suspense, romance, good vs evil and so much more.
