I have not read the other books in this series and was able to enjoy it without missing a beat. The way this author weaves a tale is wonderful. It’s one of those stories that I was able to immediately visualize in my head. Majik and warriors and lots of other things (there is a unicorn) in the amazing world the author has created.
This is one of those stories that has all of the elements similar to the writers who go by initials JR, (G) RR, CS and even JK. It’s epic and full and adventurous while moving the story forward with every word and character. While at times it is incredibly descriptive, it was never overly so. There were times that I absolutely skimmed because I just had to find out what was going on, but I don’t feel like anything was used as filler to up a word count.
I will be going back and reading the first 2 stories in the series and I will also be keeping an eye out for any books this author writes in the future.
