I love all the Kaylin and Esselieyan books, so I was pretty excited to get her out-of-print debut via ILL. Ouch.

In the later books I like her formal, lyrically descriptive style, and I love her detailed and original world-building. In this one the prose is just stilted, the world-building is cliche and incoherent, and to top it off the characters are pancake-flat with no believable motivations.

Oh well, everyone has to start somewhere. I'll keep on waiting eagerly for more Jewel and Kaylin.
