I have to admit that this is one of the best fantasy books I’ve read in some time. The impulse to keep reading was so great that I couldn’t wait to get home to continue reading. Every change I got, I was absorbed back into November’s world and clinging to the hope that she displayed.
I think that’s one of the things that really pulled me into this book… November’s hope. Granted, knowing how her life would end was something that she had come to terms with many years before. But no matter how bad things got, she always looked for the good in people, for the best outcome.
There were times when the writing style jarred me from the world I was visiting, but it wasn’t bad enough to quell the thirst I had to keep going, to find out what happened next.
All the characters that November meets along her journey are well thought out with a past that popped them out of the pages. As with many stories, there was loss, but it was acceptable.
I already have book two and I’m going to start on it today. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for November and her new life.
