Review: WOW! This was an epic fantasy lover’s dream book. I give this book 5 out of 5 magical stars! This book captivates it’s readers attention from the beginning and carries it through the end. When I started reading this book I was going through a hard time and felt that this book had the ability to take me to a fantasy land that was full of adventure to escape my reality!
This is the perfect first installment of the series and it is sure to grab the reader’s attention from the beginning. I will be waiting
patiently for the next in the series! The more I read this book the more I wanted to turn pages quickly and when I got near the end I never wanted to stop! The characterization and point of views were very intriguing and captivating. The only thing is there is some intense violence so this might be a trigger for some. I am so glad that I chose to read this book and miss the fantasy land already! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
