Poorly executed fantasy story that didn't engage me
(Updated: May 28, 2016)

I have read a lot of fantasy novels over the years and this was not one of the good ones.

The storyline is very shallow about a young man beginning to learn that he is a mage a he travels with an older shaman.

The main problem with this book is that the plotline is rushed and when a good concept is introduced it is not described well and only discussed after it happens.  The characters are also not well developed as they talk more about where they are going and not about who they are or what motivates them.

I felt the prose in the book was descriptive where it didn't need to be and rushed when more details for a section of the storyline would have been interesting.

This book was hard to follow and didn't have much substance so I recommend that you check out some of my other fantasy book reviews for better books in the genre.

I give it only 1 star as it was far short of a well-written fantasy book and the ideas were rushed and the characters had very little substance.
