Review by: Mary Blackwell on June 14, 2014 :
This is the first book I have ever recommended before I have even finished it.

How can I describe it? It is written on such an epic scale in some ways and yet in others each segment is a small crafted story. It starts off with a fairly fairy tale feel to it with a young girl who is mistreated at home and shunned by the villagers and a powerful man due to lose his place in the world, ready to do whatever he has to to retain his position. She journeys to fulfil his wishes and meets people who resonate through the story, which reminded me of old beggar women asking for food and in return granting wishes later.

There is the promise and spurning of love, marriage and destiny. There is a magical beast. There are realms of hell. There are mob scenes. There are scenes of great loss and pain as well as discovery and joy.

Ultimately, for me, this is a story of possibilities, choices and the continuing punishment of hope which if followed through can sometimes lead to better times.

I heartily recommend this book and once the little mistakes (as mentioned by David Rose below) are ironed out, this should see print in my opinion.

Oh MAN! What a great story! And no, I don't personally know the author. I downloaded this because it was free and it looked interesting. There are occasional little mistakes with English, such as interest that is "peaked" as opposed to "piqued", but these are drowned in the wonderful story-telling, riveting concept and masterful pacing of this must-read book. Clearly inspired by the story of Faust, this is nonetheless an original creation which I venture to suggest is superior to both Goethe's and Marlowe's work. Whether orthodox Christian theologians would find Neeley's premise tenable I doubt - but then, I don't care: the story is just too good. Do not miss this book!

This book was exceptional! Finally, a story that's unique with an unexpected ending!!

I loved the plot twists, and the characters drew me in right away. The villain was SO BAD... I read it straight through because once I started I wanted to know what was next.
