In full disclosure I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

The story itself was good. It is an adventure story, where the main character is in a race against time to seal a portal before monsters destroy his tribe.

I am not normally a reader of fantasy fiction, but I couldn't put this book down. Josephine Brooks' first novel is an engaging and captivating read. I thoroughly enjoyed the world and characters she created. It's all here... the heroic young man finding his destiny... the capable young woman who discovers the answer to a question she hadn't asked... even the underestimated wise parental figure. You immediately understand these characters and find yourself drawn into their quest.
