    Love and duty spar within the larger arena of good and evil.With her second page turner, Ms Chase has earned a spot on my list of must buy authors.

    This was a really good book.It tells the story of an exiled barbarian think Native American type who, contrary to law and custom, has his life saved by an enigmatic woman warrior from an advanced civilization think feudal Japan or medieval China with both male and female warriors The two then embark on a near hopeless mission to save her homeland and civilization from destruction by a demon inspired civil war.I enjoyed everything about this book The world the author has built is unique an This was a really good book.It tells the story of an exiled barbarian think Native American type who, contrary to law and custom, has his life saved by an enigmatic woman warrior from an advanced civilization think feudal Japan or medieval China with both male and female warriors The two then embark on a near hopeless mission to save her homeland and civilization from destruction by a demon inspired civil war.I enjoyed everything about this book The world the author has built is unique and very compelling The clashes of culture, from the opening scenes where the barbarian and woman warrior can barely communicate due to their differing world views, to the constraints placed on both when they return to the warrior s homeland are just one of many aspects of the book I enjoyed Equally interesting is the development throughout the book of the back stories of these cultures, the magic system such as exists , and the unfolding of the history of the world that predates the cultures of the present era and that is influencing the conflict that now has arisen.The book moves at a brisk pace throughout no dull moments here Yet it does so in a way that is logical and unrushed and not at the expense of character development While this is not a strictly military focused fantasy novel, the descriptions of combat, both by individuals and massed armies are well presented.Speaking of character development, in my opinion it is likewise excellent The two primary characters are fleshed out nicely We understand their motivations Neither of the primary characters is infallible Neither is a Mary Sue And as the two grow to respect and rely upon one another, while one might anticipate a certain romantic element to appear, as it does it is unrushed and it is left to the end of the book to resolve itself and notice I didn t say how it was resolved No bodice ripper here masquerading as epic fantasy, thank god.Now I do have one criticism of the book And it will be astonishing so the faint of heart need to stop reading now Ready Here it is I wish this book had been longer a duology or a trilogy There I said it I actually wish a fantasy book had been longer and spread over two or three books.Why do I wish it had been longer Because I really liked these characters And I really liked their struggle And I really enjoyed the world in which this story takes place And while I know I said the world building and character development were very good, I really wish I had been givenof the two characters histories and I wish I knewabout the two cultures from which they both came Now this is a fine line The author DOES give us enough world building, character development, and story to make this a very interesting book without the all too frequent bloat of many fantasy books I am not complaining about their lack making the book not good I m stating my greed for wantingof a good thing.This is a stand alone book BUT, there is potential, I suppose, for a sequel I actually would find a prequel developing how these two main characters and their cultures came to be as they are fascinating and suggest the author consider it.I would buy a prequel or sequel

    3,5 starsThis book is about the barbarian Erith who s an outcast, and the girl who saves his life, Ronne They have to fight for her country, to save the people, family and friends from the demon possessed Talorgen and his army Let s talk about the negative stuff first I found myself thinking about something else sometimes during the book, and had no idea what was going on It might have been because of the font it was like the one in the penguin classics I think , that stuff is pretty impo 3,5 starsThis book is about the barbarian Erith who s an outcast, and the girl who saves his life, Ronne They have to fight for her country, to save the people, family and friends from the demon possessed Talorgen and his army Let s talk about the negative stuff first I found myself thinking about something else sometimes during the book, and had no idea what was going on It might have been because of the font it was like the one in the penguin classics I think , that stuff is pretty important to me, and maybe this one wasn t good for me when reading fantasy, hehe I also felt the fighting and war scenes were a bit poorly written It was just oh ok now there s a war and some soldiers, wow now it s over They got away a bit too easily for my taste, but maybe that s just me Now on to the positive I really liked the story overall, and the characters were interesting, especially Kashan Sometimes there were a bit too many PoV to read from though, I think it would ve been enough with just Ronne and Erith I liked how Erith discovered his powers along the way, and didn t really understand and master them completely from the start I liked the fantasy elements in this book, it wasn t too much and it was interesting I also really liked the fact that the romance didn t take over the whole book There were some romantic scenes here and there, but not too many at all I find this book pretty well written too, except for the fighting scenes, which is always a good thing So in conclusion, I liked this book, but it had its downs too I m happy with the overall experience

    This book is about Ronne and Erith two outcasts that try to save Ronne s country from demon possessed Talorgen.I liked the story The author created a very interesting world with interesting characters It was nice to see three totally different cultures coming together.I liked the fact that the characters had trouble to understand one another, it makes everything a littlereal than when there would have been some kind of common speech, like in a lot of other fantasy worlds.I also liked This book is about Ronne and Erith two outcasts that try to save Ronne s country from demon possessed Talorgen.I liked the story The author created a very interesting world with interesting characters It was nice to see three totally different cultures coming together.I liked the fact that the characters had trouble to understand one another, it makes everything a littlereal than when there would have been some kind of common speech, like in a lot of other fantasy worlds.I also liked the magical element of the story The magic stays very mysterious, so to speak, and is not as straightforward as in many other fantasy worlds.In my opinion the book starts very slowly first six chapters and it took some time to really get into the story After that it sometimes seems a little rushed The battles for example could have been a lotdetailed.One thing I really missed is a map I think maps are always very helpful in fantasy stories

    I had a very difficult time reading this book and getting into the characters The premise is about a female warrior who has the ability to go into a beserker state and a barbarian who has the ability to heal are thrown together due to circumstances They have to work together against a nemesis bent on destroying everyone because of his past relationship with the female warrior among other things The writing didn t flow as well and felt the writing was a bit choppy just like the dialogue and I had a very difficult time reading this book and getting into the characters The premise is about a female warrior who has the ability to go into a beserker state and a barbarian who has the ability to heal are thrown together due to circumstances They have to work together against a nemesis bent on destroying everyone because of his past relationship with the female warrior among other things The writing didn t flow as well and felt the writing was a bit choppy just like the dialogue and characters It was bit slow in the beginning then picked up about closer to the end It was an ok read for me not one of my favorites

    A fairly standard tale but a well written one I thought the characterisation was well done in the main and there was a pleasing gentle humour in many scenes, particularly the romance ones The preface states this was a short story that was extended into a novel Often this results in padding but not here In fact, I wish it had been longer I would have likedscreen time for the heroine s brother andon life at court in the Empire There were also tantalising hints about her mother th A fairly standard tale but a well written one I thought the characterisation was well done in the main and there was a pleasing gentle humour in many scenes, particularly the romance ones The preface states this was a short story that was extended into a novel Often this results in padding but not here In fact, I wish it had been longer I would have likedscreen time for the heroine s brother andon life at court in the Empire There were also tantalising hints about her mother that suggestcould have been done there Still, a pleasing comfort read

    I never expected to find work of this caliber wrapped up in such a poorly done cover This is one of those rare books that can not be judged by its cover Excellent world building and characters with wonderful writing I really recommend this one if you enjoy soft fantasy ie not the 5 bazillion characters you would find in a Martin bookjust enough to keep things moving without being confusing This is one of those rare books you wish WOULD become a series.

    I m always a bit reserved when I start books that I got for free I quickly lost all reservations after the first two or three chapters Chase s writing style is easy to lose yourself in.She also has a masterful way of seamlessly switching between the perspectives of Ronne and Erith I don t know many writers who can do that without making me dizzy Read the rest of my review at the Akamai ReaderI m always a bit reserved when I start books that I got for free I quickly lost all reservations after the first two or three chapters Chase s writing style is easy to lose yourself in.She also has a masterful way of seamlessly switching between the perspectives of Ronne and Erith I don t know many writers who can do that without making me dizzy Read the rest of my review at the Akamai Reader
