I love fantasy but I loathe derivative fantasy that reads like a reworking of Lord of the Rings. Thankfully this book is nothing like a reworking of Lord of the Rings. This is a fresh and original fantasy, with a delicious twist.

The world is rich and intersting, the characters are well drawn and intriguing. The adventure is fast paced and draws the reader into the book. I loved it - one of my favourite fantasy books. ( )

A world of eh. Mediocre story, not all that interesting of characters, and an unexciting finish. ( )

(Amy) I picked this book off our shelves to read because I so enjoyed the author's Hugo-nominated novella. Well, either this was just a phone-it-in book for her, or else she has progressed immensely in the last 15+ years (the latter is probably true even if the former is as well, really), because while I did not dislike this book, it could probably best be described as "inoffensive but boring". Rote, even, perhaps.

I think I should look elsewhere for more of this author.

Epigraph
Dedication
This book survived two distinct stages in my life. In the first stage, Randy and Jeff Thompson provided valuable criticism; Paul Higginbotham and Kevin J. Anderson provided support and good advice. In the second stage, Nina Kiriki Hoffman added her affection and proofreading skills to theirs. But most of all, I could not have done this without the love and understanding of Dean Wesley Smith. Thanks, partner. I promise the next one will be easier.
