The book centers around a young boy that lives in a village (Rin) which is comprised of a tribe of people that are hardworking warrior class.
The main character, Rowan, is different from everyone else in his village as he's shy and introverted. He fears just about everything, but during his adventures, he overcomes his fears and ends up finding courage in the most dire of situations....and becomes the hero.
The series really meshes together well....from book to book. It does have some good twists, and not very predictable- overall a great story and could be a good read for young readers - boy or girl.
Rowan pulls himself together in a convincing fashion. Adults are strong and/or weak in convincing and realistic ways. Magic is minimal and serves the larger story. The adventure is sure and well paced.
The language and the concepts are appropriate for the age group. Length is good. The plotting is challenging but not too much for a young reader. The characters and their world are engaging.
From the point of view of interest, reward, excitement, challenge and reading satisfaction I can't come up with a better series recommendation than this one. Just a very good, solid choice.
