"A truly immersive world is created by the author, filled with a unique history and culture, both consistent and enthralling. The pace of the novel is balanced with time to get drawn in before embarking on an explosive story of war, power and greed.
The energy and pace in the battles was relentless - a real assault on the senses! They were where the force of enchantment was shown, and it really added another dimension to the novel. I can still vividly recall the first major encounter - the imagery was simply superb.
Overall - a stunning read that should not be missed!."
5 Star Fan Review – April 26th 2013
"The author has created a rich and imaginative universe complete with new character classes, history and lore driven by the magical essence.
An orphaned brother and sister face the challenges of growing up and forging their own paths against a background of intrigue, conspiracy, espionage and war.
In this fast paced fantasy novel the characters fight, love, live, lose and learn across a range of wide and diverse lands when the past and destiny collide.
5 stars for me!"
5 Star Fan Review – August 7th 2012
"A very satisfying read - kept me entertained from start to finish.
A good cast of characters and some interesting concepts. I particularly liked the fact that rather than just make the 'baddy' simply evil, there was a justification for their actions. This gave a bit more depth to the story than some fantasy novels.
Although this is part of a series, this book also worked very well as a 'stand alone' piece of fiction. The story builds to a dramatic climax and nearly everything is resolved, yet there are enough hooks to make you look forward to the sequel."
