This is a good fantasy story with interesting characters. It has some very good plot twists. However - it just seems unpolished or unrefined, or however you would want to put it. This book just does not quite meet professional standards. It sure could use another round of editing from a good editor. The typos, errors, omissions and grammatical inconsistencies are a bit too numerous to be tolerable at a professional level. The author, one Mrs. Catherine Milos, could also greatly benefit from employing a style coach of some sort. Something is just off about the flow of her wordsmithing. The words do not just flow off the page and easily into the reader's mind as they should. There were far too many instances of me re-reading a particular sentence or paragraph multiple times in an attempt to figure out what exactly the author was trying to get across to me. Nevertheless, this story was worth the time put into reading it.
