Juvenile Fiction - Action & Adventure
First and foremost, I LOVE the cover. There are lots of book covers that feature females on them, so this one is refreshing to see. If you’re going to do a cover with a male on it, then this is the way to do it….young, bold, and strong.
Secondly, I read the book in less than a day. I COULD NOT put it down for too long. The story kept pulling me back and the characters were entirely captivating. I have to give Sigmund props for including “magic” with a realistic scientific twist and really giving the reader a lot to think about with the plot. There were a lot of surprises both large and subtle that kept the storyline “smart” and quickly moving along. Very, very clever, all the way through.
Nearly everything about this medieval story was perfect. It is filled with honor, duty, and finding your destined path. I can not wait for the next book, Fortress of Mist, coming out in February 2013. I know there are only more twists and turns coming and I am excited to see where Thomas goes next. Yippee for great writing and an epic tale to tell!
