Meanwhile, a young queen named Kallia leads a heroic struggle to keep both her city and body free from the dark wizard's cruel embrace.

A truly evil villain makes for good reading.This story has one in the dark wizard.He not only kills but enslaves the soul. The king is dying and ousts his spoiled weak son for a daughter who is a better suited monarch for his replacement. Every thing is here for the fantasy reader to enjoy.You have wizards,good and bad,griffins,blood,sex,love. I found the book to be enjoyable and worth the time and money spent on it.

I was amazed at the plot and character growth in this book. You hardly find books with the fantasy and intrigue factor much anymore, however, this book brings both. When you begin reading the book it starts off strong and builds into a very well written book. I initially bought the second book in this series first without realizing it was a series, so I decided to buy the first as well. Wonderful idea that turned out to be, this book has everything. Magic. Court intrigue. Ghostlike monsters. Along with my personal favorite; GRIFFINS!!! If you enjoy fantasy books this is a must read series!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing. This is the best I can say about this book. 7 février 2014
Par marla3206 - Publié sur Amazon.com

The first 71 pages are slow, this is 1/3 of the book. When the battles start the book picks up, but then stalls out whenever there is not a battle happening.

The prologue of the book reads like a synopsis of a prequel, but it seemed to detract from the story. Royal titles of characters, pasha, khalif, etc., are used in the prologue and then again in the beginning of the book, but the titles are now referring to entirely different characters. This caused me some confusion in the first 3 chapters of the book. The prologue was also entirely unnecessary. The relevant info gleaned from it could have just as easily been introduced in the text of the book in a few paragraphs versus 6 mind numbing pages.The main conflict of the book is easily identifiable, yet the characters are so underdeveloped that we do not feel, or in some cases even see, the motivating factors of the main characters. And then the resolution of the book. There isn't any. The main conflict of the book is still present and now some other smaller sides stories are also left completely hanging in unwritten space. Since the book is only 189 pages it might have been better to combine the sequel with this book; at least then maybe some of the smaller side stories would be more developed. I don't know, as I will absolutely not be purchasing the next book.

As for suitability for young teens. The antagonist of the story is sadistic, and while we are not walked step by step through the brutality, rape, more violence toward a woman, the beginnings of a sexual tryst and torture they are all referenced in the novel. I think the book is a waste of time and would not offer it to my children.

Even though I'm very adult (55+), I enjoy YA fantasy. It's a gentle escape for me and fun. This book fits that description well - characters to like and revile, honorable and devilish. It's a relatively fast read with a typical but good plot. There is some graphic violence; other than that it's what I would say "safe" for young teen readers. I'm ready to read the next in the series!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Why so few reviews on this book? 22 janvier 2013
Par jcat - Publié sur Amazon.com

I gather that it's been out for over a year, and the next book is out. So why the slim number of readers that reviewed? This was a great epic fantasy, and I was very impressed.

The characters were well developed, the action-filled plot moved right along, the writing was professional, and it was never boring. Sorcerers, Wizards, Griffins, Wights (ghosts)---it had it all and more and I can't wait to read the next book.

It was such a breath of fresh air to read this well-written story, since some of the books I've read lately have left a lot to be desired in regard to writing style, proofreading, and actual content.

I give it 4 stars, it kind of reminds me of some of the old time Forgotten Realms and Dragon Lance type series, only better.
