Review:2 stars



General: I have mixed opinions on this book but unfortunately after multiple attempts I was unable to finish it and in order to stay on schedule with my reviews for my blog I needed to make a decision to review it as it was as I did not think I would be finishing it anyway.

I think the world created here was fantastic. From the first page to where I stopped I could not have loved the world more. It was a beautiful fantastic place that I could see when I closed my eyes. From the creatures to the environment he did not leave a single detail out. Also, the book started out on such a high note. You’re immediately dumped right into the action and I was interested immediately in knowing more about the strange glowing crystal and the urgency that surrounded it. However for me, shortly after, the story slipped away. The fantastic descriptions forgot to be included on characters and plot and continued to only focus on world building. For me I was unable to immerse myself in the book and grow any sort of emotion for the characters as they essentially fought to save their world. At the start everything was wonderful but it seemed to fizzle to nothing as it progressed and I was left with stock feeling characters and a plot that was moving so slow I was unsure how it was the writer who jumped right in from the get go.

Characters: Unfortunately the characters in this book do not stand out on their own. They were very traditional characters. A hero with a mission and bad guys that were bad for the sake of being bad. I wish I could say more about them but unfortunately I cannot. ( )
