Excellent story. Very gripping and a true page turner. It made me lose a little sleep because I didn't want to put it down. It was a great and compelling story. The only issue (for some people anyway) is that it leaves you hanging at the end because it's only book one of a 3-book series.

My main complaint (this is true with most Terry Brooks books) is his prose. He has a few devices that he uses over and over and over. It becomes a bit annoying sometimes. For example, at least a dozen times per book a chapter or scene ends with "and walked away without looking back." Another one is the way every good guy character spends a page of second guessing their actions when something bad happens. "I should have, could have, might have......". There are others, but these are the ones that jumped out at me the most.
