Top positive review
Good start to a new Fantasy series.
27 March 2016
I read a comment on my Kindle Fire that this was the Sorcerer's Ring then don't bother to read this. Well, I did read the Sorcerer's Ring, desperately hoping that it would redeem itself. It didn't and I could have written a scathing review of it. I decided that it wasn't worth it.
This book, however, is much more realistic. Yes we have a 15 year old girl, Kyra, wanting to be a warrior, and then there's 16 year old Alec who's part is yet to be determined, BUT, and this is a big but, we also have adults forming the armies. Adults training the youngsters.
There are a couple of silly, and very unlikely, incidents, but nothing as bad as The Sorcerer' s Ring.
Although this is written for the younger market let's not forget the other books that became massive hits with the adult market (e.g. The Hobbit and the Harry Potter books). Morgan Rice should also keep this in mind (J.R.R.Tolkien never needed an editor his English was so good.)
This book has the beginnings of a good Fantasy series: birth prophecies, a dangerous forest, a witch, a dragon and a feisty young heroine, with the promise of a young hero to come.
Give it a go - young or old.
