This full-length epic fantasy novel is a pretty good read. Believable characters with clear motivations, nicely differentiated, a strong plotline, and some good writing carried me happily along, even though I figured out most of the surprises by the halfway point. The well-planned wrap-up leaves room for a sequel or more books within the author's universe, and I'll be happy to read them. Four solid stars.

Entertaining read over a couple of snowy days. Attractive characters are well drawn. Predictable plot that has the good guy winning. Dabbles in questions of morality and making choices in hard situations.
This was a well written book with likable characters and a great twist at the end. Can't wait for more!
Enjoyed the story and characters. Would read more of this adventure if there is another out there
