's review

it was amazing

First off, let me say that if you're looking for a typical first-attempt-of-the-author book, this ain't it. I was constantly surprised, pleasantly, with the philosophical insight, complex use of language and depth of character development. Fantasy normally lurks in the action hack-and-slash area, and in fairness, when you've read about one seven-foot tall barbarian with a broadsword, you've read about them all. Tristen goes to great lengths to throw the bedrock of the genre out the window in favour of a story that is far more relatable and personal, without giving up any of the suspense or wonder. I was hooked slowly but surely, going through the first half of the book in a week, and the second half in a day. As a fellow author, I rarely say this, but I could not have written this book, not by a long shot. Buy it now, and don't let it sit on the 'to read' shelf.
