    35 starsI really liked the plot and characters in this book Its a classic greatness thrust upon story with interesting themes throughout The villains are truly despicable and the hero is likeable The magic system is interesting and I'm looking forward to description of its workings The setting is varied enough to keep things fresh Excellent description has you feeling like you're traveling alongside the charactersMy only complaint and reason for the minus5 star is that my copy was edited horribly Lots of missing letters and words and word substitutions I would estimate that a third of the pages had some sort of editing errorI'm definitely looking forward to the continuation of the story

    Formulaic fantasy boyman thrust into a role he is unprepared for and must save the world Those who should have taught him earlier now helping him find his wayEven formulaic it could have been a good read Sophomoric sentence structure and egregious word misuse relegate it to the bottom of the must read list I won't be following up with the next volumes

    from my reviewYou're always taking a bit of a risk when you read an author's first book especially in a genre as full of amateur attempts as the fantasy genre This however is no amateur hack at a fantasy novel; it's a great read which was painfully difficult to set down and I'm very anxious for the rest of the series It was endlessly worth what I paid for it a great and exciting read with enough variety chapter by chapter that I couldn't even tell myself to set it down just at the end of this chapter As someone who doesn't read a lot of fantasy novels I did notice when elements were shared with other fantasy novels I've read namely some similarities between the main character and other well known epic adventurers However I get the feeling this is normal for fantasy so I'll leave any commentary in that area to someone who knows than I do Either way it didn't keep me from loving the book Just a few specifics The characters are engaging and personable I felt like I knew them by the end of the book and the mythosspirituality of the world is something I'm really looking forward to seeing develop Also I bookmarked the map in my Kindle so I could continually flip back to it to find locations on the map and track the characters' progress across the landscape which was great fun Overall it's a great book with wonderful characters great writing and a storyline I can't wait to see continue

    I got about a third of the way through this book and then abandoned it This is the first book in a series I think there are two that are currently published and I just wasn't enthralled enough to feel like I would continue with the next book I'm not a big heroic fantasy fan and I guess I just couldn't get into the story and characters Anyone who enjoys heroic fantasy would like this book

    uit this one about 13 of the way through It just never grabbed me The fantasy setting and story are trite and there is almost no character development I pushed through a lot of this book than it deserved hoping for something to pull me in but I'm giving up
