Synopsis from Goodreads:
Above all, Huff’s storyline is as structurally and fundamentally sound as his writing. He has a forward progression to the story, each event leading up to the next. He also illustrates the interconnectedness between the events and characters, however separate they may seem at the time. By flipping between characters and places Huff is able to show many perspectives, including the ability for good and evil to switch sides and the lines in between the two to blur. He does, however, keep everything quite clear through minute changes in writing style and tone. Combine all of this with the author’s descriptions, which are complete and awe inspiring yet worked right into the body of the story without interrupting the flow, and you have a captivating whole.
If Huff’s very approachable writing style draws you into the novel, his characters keep you there. A variety of characters and their personal stories intertwine and combine to create a unique and intricate whole. Each is uniquely developed to suit its purpose in the story, while becoming a well-developed and realistic individual.
With this story Huff incorporates all the elements of a typical fantasy tale – mythical creatures, magical realms, war of good vs evil, etc. – into a story that can’t be compared to anything I’ve ever read before. It was a fun and quick read that was a phenomenal escape from reality and I can’t wait to read the sequel.
