I found Daughter of Light & Dark to be an imaginative and readable story, full of readily identifiable sympathetic and colorful characters. I enjoy a traditional fantasy quest, and this book fits right in that genre. A young heroine - inexperienced and facing appalling danger while on her quest. She gathers wizards, elves, faeries and wolves to her and throws herself into her quest to rid her world of an evil that threatens it.
The story is well paced as evidenced by the fact that it never drags on, even though there isn't the usual overdone swordplay action often seen in fantasy novels.
It is a tribute to the storyteller that she keeps the readers attention without the use of the sometimes artifice of action, action, action. There are enough crisis situations to keep the story moving and exciting.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it, and I look forward to the next edition. I was reminded of early David Eddings 'The Belgariad'.
