I really liked this book. And that's in it's entirety. The characters were deep, multifaceted like all people are. The plot was full. It is another one for the shelf I considered calling 'the wall breakers'. Books that test the line between good and bad; right and wrong; darkness and light. They face the fact that all of any one thing is bad, that he world only turns with proper portions of all. None is bad or good on it's own, it is used that way. And nothing is made-created-grown-grasped that cannot be used in both ways. Without negative we wouldn't have positive.
Yah, I know there are a myriad of books on the subject. But many I find are too 'Aesop's Tales' or just plain in your face. Dragon Sword and Wind Child instead tell a wondrous story that inspires one to think on the constructs of life and how we live it. The prose is inspired as is the narrative and I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a good reading experience without having to reserve a large amount of time, as the book is only 324 pages long.
