it was ok
Read in October, 2009

This book was OK. In light of the fact that I only bought it because I loved "The Mists of Avalon", it was a terrible disappointment. The dialogue didn't seem to fit the time period and seemed the same from person to person, despite personality, nationality or caste. The character names were odd and too hard to keep up with and I never really got attached or could relate to any one in particular. On top of it all, the writing was pretty mediocre and descriptions were lackluster. With that said, there were some aspects of the story itself that I found interesting enough to keep reading, just to see how they all turned out, even though most of it was pretty predictable.

If you like the random, quick-read fantasy novel, pick it up but if you like "Mists", skip this one.
