“The first in the Lightbringer, Fantasy Fiction series”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I’ve just finished this book. I downloaded the sample from Amazon and almost didn’t bother to buy the book – in fact, I almost gave up before the first chapter. The reason? This book does something I absolutely detest in fantasy fiction.
It immediately starts to introduce multiple terms which the reader has no hope of understanding until much later on in the book. I personally, find this distracting as I try to get a handle on what is going on and it jars.
However, something was obviously grabbing my attention so I persevered. Once you get past the fact that you don’t understand what the writer is talking about, it’s not a bad story – focusing on a world which was embroiled in a vicious war some 16 years previously and how the decisions and actions of said war are still having major percussions now – both for the characters personally and on a much larger scale.
