The Arrival has good world-building and the characters actually come up with a reason they can speak with and understand the locals. The interraction and 'relationship development's' between the girls and their guides/rescuers The Griffon Guards is not too cloying and girly. People may look at the 'blurb' for the book and think it's one for the girls but trust me - it isn't.
The magic system is clever and works well and not just enough time is spent with the girls learning to harness their abilities.
The one thing that troubled me at first was the multiple PoVs but once I was into the story I hardly even noticed it and to be honest I think the style actually added to the story.
The book ended on the biggest cliffhanger ending I believe I have come across yet and I really cannot wait for the second book in the Birthright series to be published
1. Yes the narrotor of the story changes from the 4 main characters(Cat,Kassie,Sian and Loi) quite frequently though once you get passed the first chapter or two you can tell who is the narrator as you get to know the girls (as they all have diffrent ways of thinking and personalites)but if you ever get lost just think of the narrator as Cat as it is mostly from her POV.
2.As far as the story goes it is really good and well thought out dont want to waste it for anyone so i wont go into to much detail,i'll just say this Hot guys,magic ,Evil Beings,Dragons,elf's, bitchy ex girlfriends,twist with one of the HOT guys and of course the Griffons ;-)whats n't to love ;-)
3.I'm always reading shifter and vampire books and decided to give it a try and am very happy i did at £2.21 it's a bargin !
This book has been re-uploaded on 29/11/11 to include a map and glossary of characters. It has also been fully re-formatted and edited.
so that should also help if you get a bit lost.
Unfortunately I found the book really hard to get into. This was mostly because the person narrating the story changes so frequently at the start and it is not always clear who's viewpoint we're seeing. The main viewpoint appears to be that of Cat, with the other characters added in at nearly every single interaction.
The multiple POV's, when done well, help to round out the other characters. Thankfully if you persevere with the book it does improve and you'll learn to recognise when you're about to jump from character to character.
The POV changing can be a bit confusing but once you get into it you realise that it gives you multiple characters thoughts or opinions on the same thing making it a much fuller story line. I love the way this makes the reader have to think abit to be honest, i am a very fast reader and sometimes miss bits in eagerness to find out what happens but this kind of trips you up and makes you read every part carfully! I Love it!!
It is a grown up fairytale but you feel so much part of the story that when it finished i had a genuine moment of 'oh, what do i do now?'
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone, to be honest its probably not really a guy book but girls of any age give it a go.
Thank you Nicole, you are wonderfull!!!
p.s. cant wait for the next one, i need to know what happens!
