When I started out as a writer, I didn't read much, and it showed in my writing. My greatest improvement as a writer came once I started reading voraciously. Reading gave me a feel for the flow of good writing, for the nuances of character development and the structure of a good plot.

It also gave me the confidence that I could do this too. The more I read, the more I wanted to contribute my own stories that readers could enjoy just as much.

Reading is also great for generating ideas. You might decide you want to improve on something that disappointed you in a book. Or you might just gather bits and pieces from everything you read and combine them to make your own unique world, story, and characters.(less)

This was a solid read, but that's all. There were a lot of good pieces here, but somehow they didn't form a cohesive whole. I liked what I could understand of the worldbuilding, and Talandra and Balfruss were both interesting characters I enjoyed rea ...more

I picked this up because I've really enjoyed Holmberg's Cloud Warrior saga. I've read most of the way through that series and wanted to try one of his other series.

Overall, I'd say this was a good read. It's about on the same level as the first Cloud
