really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, series, ya, first-reads
Read in December, 2010

Recieved a free copy from the author as a first reads win for the second book The Quest for the Fey Brand.

I really enjoyed this story and the characters that were developed in it. The only reason that it gets 4 stars instead of five from me is I was left feeling unresolved. The writing is great, the characters are interesting but the story was almost a prelude to the real story. Granted, this leaves me eager to read the next book. I just wish there had been an intermediate resolution in the first book.

The best thing I can compare it with is as if I were reading The Lord of the Rings (one of my all time favorite books) and the hobbits were preparing to leave Bree and the story just ended there.
