I am pleasantly surprised with this particular book. Granted I was expecting a good fantasy tale to begin with, but Evans delivers so much more than just a well written fantasy book. The writing is top notch with no room for complaints. Each element keeps true to those qualities that make a great fantasy so enjoyable to read. From the emotional qualities of each character to how Evans introduces and develops the budding relationship between characters. The entire reading experience is enjoyable and definitely an author I will return to with each new release, knowing I will have the same experience again and again. If you enjoy fantasy you will enjoy this book. I received an ARC through the publisher in exchange for my honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
