An absolute gem,
By A Customer
This review is from: Transformation: Book One of the Rai-Kirah (Paperback)
I have to admit that I had read mixed reviews of this book in various places and kept putting off reading it - I thought it would be one of those books that was good but dragged. Not so! I found almost every page totally absorbing. The depth of the story simply does not disappoint. I was hooked within a few pages and totally involved with both main characters.
I also liked how the relationship was different to how it might have been expected, even surprising. Not boy/girl but slave and master, and it deals with a relationship between two men without falling into the ploy of making it a romantic interest. Their relationship evolves and goes much deeper than that to the kind that explores the meaning of brotherhood/friendship. The book is an adventure and a moving exploration of two extraordinary characters.
Also, if you're not into trilogies and fear reading this in case you have to read all three, again this is not so. The book may be one of a series but it is very much a stand alone novel as well.
