's review

really liked it

3 stars for the first part of the book..
and not because he is a bad writer or something but just because he put way to much fight descriptions ,fighting trainings and war techniques in a book where i didn't expect it to be,at least not in such an amount.
I love to read fantasy not action or adventure novels..and i get disappointed if i don't get what expected .

The 4 stars are because as up 70% to the end it was a great story again,a page turner with a lot of "normal" action and we learn much about the characters and the development between them becomes clearer .

If not for the last 30% i definitely wouldn't give a thought of reading the next installment.But as it is i will be happily awaiting the next part in the series,which is due in February i believe.

I do recommend this book for lovers of the fantasy genre but i believe it will more appeal to the male population of Brett's readers .

81.0% "ah...yes.Got it now..the R.girl involvement..Must say it becomes much more interesting after 70%..but oh boy, it was a long and boring trip to there...and ofcourse as we come closer to the end i wish it never finishes.."
