it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy
Recommended for: To anyone who wants a classic fantasy.

This is a good first novel from Adrian G. Hilder. While not perfect this book has a great pace and enough intrigue to keep your eyes on the page. The book starts with a great action scene that gets you hooked as well as sets up the divisive issue of the plot.

But if you are worried that this is another slow mover like GoT or any of those politics heavy series, never fear! This novel is well paced throughout even in the more slower, political moments. There are also a few twists here and there that keep the reader on their toes and guessing as to the plan of action.

There are also likable characters, something that is a must for me, as I hate cheering for the bad guy! You feel for them in the situation that they have been thrown into as they are more than a little unprepared and it gives them a sense of humanity.

There are also a few love interests and sub-plots woven in that gives the whole mix an added depth of flavor and interest.

Over all this classic fantasy (it even has a magic sword and mages!), is a fun read that I really enjoyed. It was light, yet have enough serious notes to keep a good balance between the serious and the light making it easy to read.

At no point do you feel like you need to take a break and read something else.

On top of that you have moments of great prose to enjoy and savor speckled throughout, and you get the feeling that this is a author to watch and I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a new author or to anyone who wants a classic fantasy where there are magic swords, mages, danger, action, and good characters. -

Bookshelves covered the walls. The Knowledge of the kingdom lay within the book lined up on the shelves. They spoke of the clamour of Ephire's floating markets on the great river. They told the tales of eager boys pushing exotic fruits into the hands of bewildered visitors. They described pack animals adding their perfume to the streets where beggars pray their next meal-- streets where press gangs and slavers stalk in search of the able and unlucky.
