bookshelves: fantasy, ya
Recommended for: Shinn Fans, fantasy lovers,
Read from January 11 to 14, 2011, read count: 1

The settings are not fully realized, nor are the inner-lives of the main characters (who are more or less vehicles for the plot which is one of unfolding awareness and reaction), yet the pages keep turning and the story keeps moving on and the reader is rewarded.

As YA, this story is likely a good one for learning how to read archetypes and discover literary devices, it is a very unapologetic, baldfaced, straightforward fantasy read. The structure is perfect, the plot unfolds methodically making reading the book like driving a familiar winding road for experienced readers or a great first curvy, hilly road for fantasy readers just getting started. This book will reward them both with a destination worth reaching.
