Wish it were longer, but was more than pleasant.
I was given the opportunity to review this book for a copy.
I’d like to say this was by far the best book I’ve gotten to trade a review for. The writing was eloquent, the vocabulary superb. Lera wasn’t what I would consider a strong character but she maintained her position throughout the whole book. She didn’t start out one way and end in a 180 of her character, and I appreciated that.
I felt the book would have benefited from more exposition. A lot that happened was confusing and jarring, not having a background to the terms within the book. Even so, I felt it was absolutely a pleasant read.
1. I felt the over all story could have used more foreshadowing, development and time spent on building the world. I’d have loved to see more of that.
2. Characters were consistent and enjoyable.
3. The one major complaint would be no glossary, or head’s up about some of the words the author used. Half the time with the words for things, or events I had to guess at. I realize glossaries in audiobooks is nearly impossible, but you know...
I would like to see book two. But I’d like it to be a lot longer than a little over an hour.

While I enjoyed this story, for the most part, it was a little difficult to get in to without much background on the characters. When the story started, we were already in the thick of the plot, which caused me to lost a bit of focus on the story. It was difficult to connect with the characters, as well. It’s a nice story, but it needed more.
