Review by: Carrie Clevenger on Jan. 15, 2014 :
This was different than most fantasies I've read. The author sucked me into the story much like Elizabeth Chadwick. The use of sexual connotations without actually using them was ingenious (as were the terms). The characters were better than most I've seen in a lengthy jog such as this one. It wasn't disgusting or even really weird. She removed me so far from reality that I was able to embrace her universe and leave mine for a little while. On the other hand, the plot plods along. It's very much a Dark Tower-esque book, a journey to destiny. Action-seekers may not like the book. I tend to fall in love with characters and Pell was fairly likable. The very end was a little abrupt, but I think I've been spoiled by the "oh here is the end, all tied up neatly". It was a big fantasy story with one hell of a journey to the top. The outcome was mostly unexpected. I suggest you give it a try and open your mind to new possibilities.

Have read all the books I can find written by Storm and liked them all. I am grateful too that I was able to purchase this book in electronic format as I had already purchased the second in the series and did not want to read it before I read the first. Thank you Storm Constantine and Smashwords!!

Review by: Nerine Dorman on Nov. 29, 2009 :
After struggling to find printed copies of this novel in my home town, it's absolutely fabulous that Storm has finally gotten 'round to releasing her Wraeththu series as ebook.

In this novel, we get to follow Pellaz's journey of discovery when he is incepted into the ranks of the Wraeththu. The tale gradually unfolds, showing a richly textured world without overwhelming readers.

There were times when I grew annoyed with Pell's behaviour near the end, but overall this is a daring read. It wasn't easy wrapping my head around the Wraeththu sexuality because it is unlike anything I've encountered in fiction thus far. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
