What I did find a little irritating though, were the consistent errors, for example, the use of common, instead of come on. While I would love to be able to write in a non-native language, the book really does need editing, as a couple of sentences simply didn't make sense and one left me wondering what the author was trying to say.
Overall, I would give 4 stars for the story, but if I could, I would drop half a star for the poor editing. That said, the lack of editing seems to be a common failing in self-published Kindle books and at least this one did have more drama and suspense than some others I've read recently. As an author of a self-published book myself, I know this is the hardest part.
I loved the opening scene. The warrior Morcel's choice to leave off the life he had been leading lately brings him in a sense back to the land of the living. All because that one last drop had fallen. Life is like that (although maybe not quite as brutal as the village scenes). Sometimes that one drop extra falls and you cannot stand your own choices any longer. Change comes - sometimes for the better, sometimes not. Morcel's having had his fill plays an important role in the plot of The Land of Shadows.
Right away I am going to warn you of a particularly gruesome scene - the one that changes Morcel's life. This is NOT a book for Young Adults and there are definitely trigger factors for those who have been victims of sexual abuse. Consider yourselves warned.
In this scene we meet a girl who also plays an important role in the development of the plot. If you are awake you will spot her reappearance. She is quite a strong character.
There is action from the beginning of Land of Shadows. Talk about intense scenes that just grip me and will not let me go. Not until Chapter 3 do we get a description of beautiful Tarmerria. But that beauty does have a back side. There are plenty of unwanted elements, crime and scary outlanders.Read more ›
