Oh, this was ok. A fun little adventure/fantasy story with a lot of typical cliches and plotlines. The starring characters are a girl who lost her memory, the noble prince, the old wizard and the likeable "bad boy" in a standard medieval-fantasy quest story. Pretty standard characters in a pretty standard story. But if you're looking for a fun, not too dark or serious read and don't mind some fantasy cliches, this might be it for you.

Too long and too predictable. The characters were interesting and likable enough to finish but I can't say I really enjoyed it. The narration of the story irked me too.

A bit slow, but engrossing

The author really, really likes the sound of language as evidenced by florid descriptions. But those don't drag on too long and there's plenty of action and feats of derring-do to offset them. The romance builds slowly, spiced with nothing more than a few kisses. The story is reminiscent of Tolkien's work, with Turog standing join for orcs. The dialog is occasionally stilted and stiff. Comma errors pop up enough to recommend a proofreader take a look at the manuscript.

I wanted to like this. The world seemed to have possibilities. But it was predictable and the strong gender profiling got to be too much and I realized near the end I wasn't enjoying it enough to continue.
