It was adventurous and exciting. Maybe not in the beginning but as the pages kept on turning so did the story. Some bits and twists were predictable but besides that every part was written rather poetically. Naqvi has talent and I'm sure with each book of this trilogy it will get better!
I really enjoyed reading about Damont's journey to find out who he really is. I felt a real connection to him and his Uncle Julian. But there were some characters in the story that have me skeptical about their friendship (Maybe its just paranoia). Yep, I'm talking about the bad guys. They'll totally annoy me in this one specially the "real big bad guy" at the end. He's a lot more playful and cynical. I guess he likes to play with his food before eating it. If you know what I mean.
Overall, the characters were all carefully written and the story was awesomely planned. But the genre isn't for me. But for those who like to try different things and who loved the LOTR Trilogy you should pick up this book. 4/5 stars
So I was reading this on the iPad and everyone kept on taking the iPad from me because you know. Its not my iPad. Its "our family's" iPad. So there's 4 of us using it. Anyways, my point is. I'm not comfortable reading E-books on E-readers and I took almost more than 2 weeks to finish this book because of it. I think I'd rather read them all on my Adobe Reader on my Macbook. I read faster that way. Plus, I really get into the story without any distractions! I'm glad I finished another book this month. I thought I'd be stuck with just 2 this month. I'm such a disgrace in the book blogging community.
I'd like to thank Ali for allowing me to review his book. I enjoyed it and my venture onto this genre.
Where to find him?
