Have no fear of any time wasted with Sean Hinn! Some good friends recommended that I read his first title, I did and boy am I so glad for it. By the time I finished the Prologue, I knew I had to finish the book. My measure of good writing is that I don't notice it while I'm reading, that the words form a flow of images in my mind. Hinn's crafting of words is just so; descriptive without wasting words, colloquial without tripping my reading. I was at Chapter VI when I remembered that I was reading a new author, and that was just because I had to set the book down for the night.
No spoilers to the story here, but it is compelling. It made me want to keep reading, find out what happens next, know more about the protagonists. Overall, I am pleased to unreservedly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good fantasy writing.
I just could not put this book down. There’s the perfect amount of description of characters and environment to put you right there in their world and make you invested in their lives. And it’s a very interesting place in which they live; and their interactions, both with their own kind and others, is fascinating – and at times, hilarious. The story is great and has just the right amount of magic and mysticism to make it fun and interesting without being over-the-top, and there are many parallels to real-world issues. I’m sure everyone that reads will see a bit of themselves and/or people they know in many of the characters. You will find yourself needing to know what will happen to these fantastic characters next! Easily the best book I’ve read in years, and maybe ever – in any genre.
As a homeschooling mom, I love that the story (thus far) is clean enough for a child to read but not overly simplistic. I could easily recommend this to a 13 year old girl or to my 17 year old son. I would also heartily recommend it to my friends as well. It is a thoroughly entertaining story with enough interest to capture almost anyone's attention. If I were to assign this as a reading assignment to my kids, I would focus on the themes of bravery, sacrifice and honor on the one hand and arrogance, obsession, and indolence on the other. There is plenty in the book to discuss and think about. However, as a reader I just enjoyed the ride.
My only complaint (and this goes for most modern fiction) is that unlike the classics, there is no actual plot resolution. We are literally left in the middle of the story. That is a pet peeve of mine, but it does seem to be a rather irritating trend. Though, considering that Dickens wrote his stories as weekly or monthly serials for newspapers, I guess what's old is new again. Fortunately, the next part should be out very shortly. I hope the author is already working on the third installment (if there is one) and we won't have to wait long. If the second part is as good as the first, I will be on pins and needles waiting for the next one.
I like the way the story moves along without over emphasis on “talismans”. In this first book at least there is no fabled sword or sorcerer’s ring, just people confronting a worldwide (Tahr wide) problem and some reacting with integrity and trying to devise a plan to cope with it. Also, on the other hand, a couple of nefarious villains to exploit the situation for their own ends.
An easy read, a very satisfying and very well constructed book. If the sequels meet or even exceed this first effort, I see no reason why this series won’t become as popular as Mr. Brooks Shannara series.
