The listing for this book says it is the first in the Damar series, but fyi, it is a complete story. The other book in the series takes place well before this and has no real influence on what happens here.

Cheryl | 949 comments I am so sorry, but I could not get into this book. I did not get too far before giving up. I feel like such a failure when it comes to Fantasy reads here! I don't know why, but it almost feels like I'm reading a foreign language. I had success with a few more contemporary fantasy novels, but they didn't have much world-building in them. (They were also YA, mainly.) At least I gave it a try. Maybe next time?

NO worries. I do not believe in reading stuff you can't get into! This is a personal favorite, but it's not the best of this author's work and the main character is a total Mary Sue. (Which does not bother me, but I'll write about that more tomorrow in the finished thread.)

Thanks, Adelaide. One of these times I'll find one I like.


Sarah (sarahmott) | 377 comments This book didn’t really pick up for me until about chapter 3. I think I finally figured out what it is about Robin M that really bugs me: over-abundance of exposition! The woman should master the art of flashbacks...or watch a season of Lost.
