Read full description of the books:



As a huge lover of fantasy, I was psyched to win this from the Goodreads Giveaway program. I'm sorry that life (well, mostly school) kept me from reading/reviewing it for so long. The cover art made me a little skeptical, but as the story unfolded I found myself appreciative of how the artist actually depicted characters from the book rather than generic cover art.

In terms of plot, this first installment in a trilogy follows Nadia, a princess, as she joins a group attempting to deliver and play an ocarina (I had a hard time with this--all I think of when I hear the word ocarina is Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is an amazing video game btw)to prevent demons from escaping their magical mountainous incarceration. (try saying that three times fast) Nadia has a few secrets up her sleeve, though. For one, she is not as helpless as she may seem--she actually is quite good at fighting! Secondly, she disguises herself as a man in full-on knight gear so her travel companions don't know who she is--this I definitely appreciated because the 'lady dressed as a man' plot device is one of my favorites...no, it seriously is. Her other secret is that her horse is not actually a horse but a kelpie--whose human form she is actually using on her journey. (crazy!) Don't worry, these aren't spoilers.

The world-building in this novel was done rather well. It was easy to fall into Durante's world and to follow the narrative. One aspect of the work that I particularly enjoyed was its accessibility. The fantasy genre can often be alienating because of its inventive language, names, etc. Erin Durante made this an easy read and I appreciated that. At times, I felt like it was a little bit dialogue-heavy and that characters were not acting consistently, but overall it was a very quick read so any faults can be compensated for by enjoyment levels and pacing:-)

In terms of the series, this edition wraps things up rather nicely but the epilogue foreshadows where the next installment will be going. (for those of you that hate cliffhangers)
