Not a bad read at all!
on 13 October 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story progresses at pace without losing the reader, and the magic 'system' is a novel one. The characters were engaging enough to keep me interested in their plight, though the aforementioned pace of the book left me less invested in them than I might have liked. It felt sometimes that the book tried to squeeze too much in, I would have liked a lengthier read so that the story and characters could have been fleshed out a little more. The battles were engaging and fast paced, though I often was left confused as to how they actually transpired, rather I was aware only of who was winning and that people were dying, that said they were still very enjoyable.
All in all a great novel that I can only assume was a debut. I will definitely be reading the next one, and if James Maxwell further improves it will be an excellent read and will net him 5 stars from me. 4 stars for 'enchantress' if I could do half stars it would be 4.5!
