really liked it

Creslin is eventually engaged (not his choice) to Megeara and runs away while traveling to her city. He wanders and is caught by both Chaos Magicians but is aided by Order Wizards and escapes. Eventually he is forced to band with fiancee for both of their protections.

The first half was very meandering in the journey. The lack of clear direction or aim made it seem a little slow. The second half is marked by Megaera's treatment of Creslin. Although she was mean, I can understand why she acted the way she did. Reading Creslin was fun but frustrating because he never seems to understand anything. He does see the big pictures, plan well for the future, and work hard...but completely misses some things (usually social in nature).
