    I haven't read this genre in a long time. I'm so glad this is the book that lured me back. I was thoroughly engrossed in it and had a hard time putting it down at times. I'd never heard of F.T.

Returning to his homeland, he finds the land in a state of turmoil.There is a vast, well-developed world withi...

    This is really an engaging story. The words truly come alive under the skillful hand of Ms. McKinstry. It is a very vivid read with some incredible imagery - "his heart limping with futile sentiment".This is a complex story where you live and breathe Lorth's journey: the hunter's rede; the wizardry;...
