(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
When I got a short way into this book, I found it a bit difficult to connect the different storylines inside my mind. At first, the separate plotlines seemed kind of disjointed – but as the book went on, things began making more sense.
I found this book to be quite an engaging read, all told. Although there were a few instances I felt that came across as kind of info-dumping, the world was still interesting to read about.
Many of the elements in this book were recognisable as the normal elements found in fantasy books. They were used in ways that helped make this book more entertaining, though.
One of the things I liked about this book was the mythology and the gods. Although a lot of the god-characters didn’t show much of their personalities, those that did were quite intriguing and I’d like to see more of them.
Another thing that was quite interesting about this book was the two different groups that came together. Although they weren’t all heroes in the conventional sense, it was interesting to see them work together and I felt they came across as quite well-rounded.
I liked Amber a lot, though I wasn’t so sure about her from her first appearance. I also especially liked Gooly. I felt sorry for him at first and as the book progressed, I found him more and more intriguing.
I did notice some errors in the writing, but on the whole, I was able to picture a lot of the events happening inside my mind. I did get a bit confused at times with some of the characters’ history, but after a while, that confusion settled.
I do have the next book in this series on my Kindle and fully intend to read it very soon.
