A Haunting Tale
I read this book hoping that I would like it since I am an avid romance fan for the most part. The story piqued my curiosity, though, so I gave it a whirl.
I will not go into the story line since one reviewer has already covered that. Instead, I will give my impressions of what I read.
First of all, I like the cover. The dark picture draws me in to take a closer look. The detail of his armor and weapons are excellent! Kudos to the artist.
Like I said before…I hoped that I would like it. I was wrong. I loved this story…even without any romance in it.
The characters are compelling, the tale is intriguing and it keeps you guessing all the way through it.
On the “con” side, it left me feeling like I did not receive the entire story. I am certain that this was intentional but it left me unfulfilled, just the same. That is my problem, though. I like to read straight through to the end with no detours or months of waiting for the next morsel. This is why I stopped watching soap operas. Like I said…that’s just me.
The other thing that bothered me were the typos. There were not so many as to take away from enjoying the book but there were some that I had to pause and figure out. The “dragonkinddragonkin” I believe is deliberate on the author’s part but I would have hyphenated it, I think.(It’s that irritating “perfectionist” in me rearing it’s ugly head again!)
I highly recommend this book to all who love fantasy. I will give it five stars, even though I feel like I haven’t finished reading it, since I spoke with the author and he said that the typos are being repaired.
