2 stars for everything else. Characters were very basic with no "quirks". The story itself was so fast paced that no concept of time was achieved by the reader or resolution. Aka like riding a rollercoaster that has no drops. The viewpoint of the reader switched between the characters too quickly. This led to a jumbled mess of plots. I only realized that some characters were in a major scene until after it had passed.
Bought for the sale price of $0.99, would not pay more for this quality of story. Would recommend the author make this book available on Kindle unlimited to reach more readers and receive more feedback.
What a great start to the series. I can't take much time reviewing this part of the story, because I am eager to start book 2! This story has so much action in it, it is difficult to calm myself to sleep. Don't miss this exciting fantasy adventure!
