*Disappointing* pretty much says it all. I had such high hopes for this one, and the story did carry me off at first...The setting, the characters, the initial building of the plot promised to deliver a great adventure. I slurped up all the details of the boy's wide education and filed away all the clues about the trials to come, the future in store for him, the state of the world around him, the wonderfull possibilities for the development of Tuala's character. And then I waited. And waited. Nothing came to fruition. By the time I had listened to three quarters of the book I knew there was no hope. The early promise of a great story was definitely not kept, and about half way through it began tapering off into a tedious, unconvincing love story. I have an hour or so to go, but I cannot bring up the will to finish this.

- Curtis "I'm just an old goat that like magic, dragons, elves, dwarves, wizards and witches. I read for intertainment and like long fast paced books that have just a few central characters....Loved Iron Druid series and Monster Hunter series. I live on a farm in SC and have given all the birds and animals that hang in my yard names and magical powers, and sometimes it seems like they really do."
