Review by: catghost on Feb. 28, 2013 :
I really wanted to give this book four stars but the way that chapters on past and current events are interlaced really annoyed me. I can see why its constructed like this and even accepted it during the first half of the book. However as the (present time) action picked up I started to get more and more frustrated at been taken back into the past.

On a more positive note, the major characters are believable and have a good back story. Also I can even sympathise with Kevin's frustration with some of the minor characters having meet similar people in real life.

All in all I would recommend this book.

Review by: Dune Elliot on March 2, 2011 :
I liked the concept of this book and the approach to a magical world that is attached to our in a different way.
The characters were likeable and the main ones easy to keep distinuished, although the background ones tended to blend with each other especially in the back story.
It was easy to read, with the author making good use of descriptions. I don't know much about bridge construction, but it seems like the author has a foundation in civil engineering which did get a little technical and dry at certain times.
The only other issue I had with this book, and it may just be a personal preference and not a crtique, if the bouncing back and forth between past and present every other chapter. I would just get engaged in one story line then have to revert back to the previous one which got a little frustrating.
All in all I liked this book and plan on reading the prequel 'Bridge at War'. Definitely recommended if you like fantasy.
