My Thoughts: I’m finally reviewing this book, after I had already reviewed the second and third books of the series. I really like it. It’s a little rough, showing that it is the author’s first published work, but it’s good. The characters are interesting, and the adventure intriguing.
My Favorite Quotes:
“The people of Arcrea love him. They consider him a hero-worthy to claim our crown. Should he give the word, all of our people would rise up against us in his name to remove us from our rightful place in the seven seats of Arcrea.”
