While I do like this series of books I don't think that they are amazing. I find the characters fun and simple. The world is easy to image and the plots are good but they are not the kind of books that grab me and make me have to turn yet another page to the detriment of all else. They are a light hearted not to serious a series to read between those books that take it out of you to read.
This book focus' on Darian, an orphan that is being raised by a village that seems to begrudge his very existence. It deals with the grief of losing his parents, his struggle to fit in, learn the magic that he has been gifted with. All seems to be a dead end for Darian until an attack on his village throws him into the path of the scary Hawk brothers and all changes for Darian.
This is by no means the first trilogy set in the land of Valdermere, but it is the first ones that I read and therefore the ones that I have a soft spot for.
I would recommend this series to anyone that wants a break some from epic fantasy, and would like something more simple to get into for a while.
