This book is fantastic from start to finish. It transports you to the realm of Celadmore with the visual descriptions and cinematic feel.
The characters are well written and well rounded so that you find yourself getting cross with them when they make stupid decisions and cheering them when they are successful.
This book has a Tolkien-esque feel to it in scale and style with a touch of Joss Whedon thrown in for good measure but rounded out with a female perspective that really makes this quite an incredible book.
It is a book for people who love epic fantasy as well as those who hate it, it's not so fantastical that you feel it has strayed into ridiculous realms, but much more concerned with a genuine exploration of people and their relationships with one another as well as their reactions to the world around them.
Not only that but this book is full of twists turns and intricate subplots that are woven around the main plot line, most of which ebb and flow as the story takes form and though some are resolved by the end they are picked up by new intrigue that makes the promise of the next book even more tantalizing.
The twists that this book takes mean that what you accept as fact when you first start reading is definitely going to have changed by the end, take nothing at face value when reading this book and expect surprising revelations!
