A very good story. The magic was very different from what other authors have done making it truly unique. Like many others, I am a grammar snob, but surprisingly didn't have many issues in this book. Loved the characters, they were more like real people. You know, unsure of some of the issues in their lives. Loved the book.
Waiting for the next in this series.
Thank you Mr. Clayborne for the wonderful read.

An instant classic. It is very long, but that is of no import.

I agree with crpgnut. The book is wonderfully imaginative. Plus, for this grammar/spelling snob, I wasn't jarred by any horrible grammar or spelling issues. That is a real pleasure for me. I hate being engrossed in a story only to be kicked out by bad grammar, spelling, or sentences that are obvious rewrites that didn't have the previous words deleted. Mr. Clayborne writes with the reader in mind by allowing the story to take over the imagination rather than being constantly interrupted by mistakes.

How wonderful to read an author that cares enough about good writing to actually write well. It enhances the reading and enjoyment of the story. Thank you, Mr. Clayborne. I can't wait for the sequel!

Finally, a book that deserves the 5-star rating. This book has all the right stuff for a good fantasy novel. You've got lots of magic, battles, romance, political turmoil, everything. You've got flawed heroes who make several mistakes but keep trying even when knocked on their butts.

This book is not for young audiences. There are a few scenes of sexual encounters with all the words that go along with that. 13+ would be my guess, but I don't have kids.

The book has a unique idea for the magic of the world so that was a pleasant surprise as well. Download this book and enjoy some truly good writing.
