Overall, I was slightly disappointed in this book. But it definitely was better than I though it was going to be after the first couple of chapters. I also recently found out the second book in the series is going to be called Sun Warrior and I will be reading that one as well.
My first impression was that the book was kind of boring. Then we moved into Dead Eye’s chapter and I was so utterly disgusted I seriously thought about DNFing the book. I was repulsed by everything is his chapters that I really felt like I just couldn’t move forward with it. He was literally filleting the skin off of a live animal and instead of killing it, left it in complete misery. Like WTF? Some how I managed to push on. Luckily, Dead Eye’s chapters were few and far between over the course of the book.
Thank the Book Heavens above for Nik and The Companions! They were seriously the saving grace for this book. Had it not been for the chapters told from their perspective, I WOULD NOT HAVE FINISHED the book.
In the first chapter from the Companions perspective we get to see a Shepard choose her companion. It was completely intriguing and I loved it so much. And then another one of the litter runs away! The poor pup, I was a worried mess at that point. I know if I lived in this world, I would FOR SURE BE A COMPANION. I have no doubts about that and I would be perfectly content.
One thing I really didn’t like was that there was no explanation of these different types of groups in the books. We just got their classification. For instance, we learn that there are Earth Walkers, Scratchers, Companions, Skin Eaters. It was really confusing. Like later on in the book we find out that Earth Walkers and Scratchers are the same group. It also became apparent that these different groups knew absolutely nothing about each other. I wish she would have have a glossary or taken the time to explain the structure.
I was definitely grateful that the Companions (Tribe of the Trees) took the time to explain how the world in their story came to be. It was quite interesting and really makes you wonder.
The way the different tribes/clans were set up was really weird. It could still use some further explanation in my opinion. But I really hoped their would be a change on the horizon for these groups because of Mari and Nik.
In my opinion, this book had a LOT going on. Maybe too much because most of the book was extremely slow for me. It didn’t even get remotely interesting until like 40% in and thats really late considering how many pages the book is. I feel like this book had so much potential, but it didn’t embrace it until the end.
I’m not sure this review portrays my exact feelings about this book, so I’ll try my best to put them into word here. Like I said, overall I was extremely disappointed in this book. In the beginning I was completely repulsed by this book. Then it redeemed itself and slowly (AND I MEAN SLOWLY) got better. The ending was definitely the best part. I will be continuing the series when the next book is released. However, at this point, I don’t think I will ever re-read this book. Keep in mind I’m not a huge re-reader anyways.

This book has such an amazing storyline and the characters are so addictive to read about. It is amazing and baffling to me how this author is able to create such a compelling fantasy work that I got hooked on from the first page, it is hard for me to put into words how utterly amazingly this tale really is and how much of an outstanding writer this author is. It has adventure, fear, regret, sorrow, pain, but you also have the warmth of hope and love and the promise of something better. This is a book that makes you feel good because of the spirit of some of the characters, no matter what is going on in their lives.
If I was able to then this book would be getting more than 5* rating from me. This is a book everyone must read, it is mind blowing in how amazing it is!!!!!
