it was amazing
Read from August 14 to 23, 2012

This was a great read. It contained all the epic fantasy I could have asked for.

The story is told from the perspective of several groups of Realmists (the magicians who draw their power form the second realm) who are converging on the Dragon city to fight to save the world from the evil Gormons from the outer realm.

It was engaging and kept me reading when I should have put it down and gone to sleep. The author has created a cast of characters that kept my attention throughout. I found that I had to keep myself from rushing through it, just to find out what happened next.

The magic of the Realmists worked well and she demonstrated how they learned and grew in their power. I particularly liked the bonding test that the Realmests underwent when joining with their creatures was well done and fresh.

Overall I was very pleased and look forward to the next book in the series.
