Having read both Michelle Bryan s and Michelle Lynn s previous works, and enjoyed all of them immensely, I was tantalized by the prospect of having them team up to write a fantasy series I played a game with myself, trying to determine if a certain passage was written by one Michelle or the other.Honestly I lost that game Both writers are so good, and their styles flow together so seamlessly, that I couldn t tell where one Michelle left off and the other began The characters, as expected, ha Having read both Michelle Bryan s and Michelle Lynn s previous works, and enjoyed all of them immensely, I was tantalized by the prospect of having them team up to write a fantasy series I played a game with myself, trying to determine if a certain passage was writ

Firstly, if you hate cliffhangers, wait for .I found this story easy to get into and, once it dragged you in, you were hooked until the end.Sort of good kingdom and bad kingdom but wee twists and turns keep you guessing AND the ending..WOW, was so not expecting that A few laughs and some
It took some time for me to get into things, mostly to familiarize myself with the workings and names of the world the story takes place in For the latter, the little glossary has been quite helpful if you are the impatient type, even though the story is pretty much self explanatory and there aren t that many unfamiliar names or names in general to work with, which is pretty relaxing for someone like me for whom being bombarded with titles and names is very frustrating, simply can t remember th It took some time for me to get into things, mostly to familiarize myself with the workings and names of the world the story takes place in For the latter, the little glossary has been quite helpful if you are the impatient type, even though the story is pretty much self explanatory and there aren t that many unfamiliar names or names in general to work with, which is pretty relaxing for someone like me for whom being bombarded with titles and names is very frustrating, simply can t remember them, hence why I gave up reading Game of Thrones after approximately 30 pages.The style of writing makes for a fluent reading experience Descriptive parts are sparse and to the point just the way I like it A bit of light humor here and there lightens the mood effectively.Although the two kingdoms at hand are labeled with dark and light magic, suggesting a simple black and white of evil and good, I was relieved to find a distinction wasn t that easy to make The many
