I found this story completely captivating. It is well written, flows smoothly and is easy to read. It is slow paced and being 500+ pages, it is not a quick read. The imagery is amazing, I can picture every scene as the story unfolds. The author did an amazing job portraing the characters, their emotions and the experiences they go through.
This would be a great book/series for a teen/young adult reader. There are all types of mystical creatures throughout the book. There are dragons, elves, dwarves, stories of lake monstes and other various creatures.
The lead female character is Jahrra. She is found in a sacred oak tree just a few hours old. A blonde haired blue eyed baby girl. Only humans can have blue eyes, but there hasn't been a human around for hundreds of years. Where did she come from, and could she be the child the prophecy speaks of? She is taken to a Nesnan family to be raised. Her adoptive parents are wonderful people who love her very much. She also has the ancient Korli dragon Hoombramantu guiding her.
This book is quite detailed in Jahrra's upbringing. How she got her start in life, up through her pre-teen years. While she may be raised to think she is an average Nesnan, she is anything but.
I can't wait to read the next book to see what will happen next. For those of you who have read the author's Otherworld Series, this is completely different. I highly recommend the book/series, and think it would be best appreciated by a younger audience.
