    Fantasy/adventure has never been my preferred genre, but I have to say this book took and held my interest from the very first page and throughout. McNally has crafted a wondrous world and filled it with wonderful and well-developed characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the author's skillfully crafted plot-twists keep the reader on the edge of his seat. I highly recommend this read!
