I'm on the fence about this. 3.5, I think, because the fantasy elements in it were muddled due to the storytelling. Still, if you like fantasy and LGBTQ YA (which I do) definitely worth a look. I'm glad I read it, and look forward to the second book - there will be a second book, right? - because this first one is really a small introduction to what appears to be a very intriguing world.

I love the plot - sort of reminded me of Lord of the Ring. Unfortunately, the style of executing the plot is just too bland. Had trouble of completing this book.

Great world building - some scary and violent passages to get through. Not a M-M romance so don't expect any such.

Growing up, Jon Wilson wanted to be a stunt man, a professional wrestler or a rodeo clown. After breaking his neck in 2001, he decided writing might be safer.

He was wrong.

Currently living in California, he is occasionally hard at work on his next novel. The first of his Declan Colette Mysteries, Cheap as Beasts, was short-listed for Lambda Literary's Best Gay Mystery.
