You Like Fantasy? Then this is the book for you!
There are a few points I wish to make when reading I.M's book; 1. Reminds me so much of avatar and not in a bad way of any sorts, I love the series just as I much love the theme of this book. I half expect an avatar like king who can wield all the elemental weapons and be like "you're my bitches now." Jokes aside. 2. I am a sucker for fire, dual-wielding swords and Pheonixs. 3. The religious aspects reminds me of dragon age a little, with different kingdoms and clans having their own god and stories of the old ways its very cool. Now that's out of the way, there are some things to note when first reading and that the story does follow a similar theme we have all seen before, and a slow beginning before the story can finally kick off but do not let that deter you as the author has carefully used this time to develop and, introduce you to their world. Not giving you one large dump of info in one chapter but over the many starting chapters, giving you the most important pieces of information of the lore, the worlds history, the creatures it inhabits, the customs and the four kingdoms. Easy to digest and put together while keeping forward along with the story. I have in a way been impartial to human characters, regardless if I am reading or watching a movie, I do struggle to be emotionally attached to human characters but when an animal is involved or a friendly giant (wink, wink) I go aww and want to treasure them at all costs. I very much enjoyed this book, and I look forward to seeing what happens next in the series.
