|I was a bit surprised when I read the review of this book by David Felts. Now don't get me wrong, I didn't rate this book a 5 out of 5, I did however give it a solid 4 out of 5. In re-reading Mr. Felts review, it occurred to me he was expecting it to be Science Fiction, when in fact, in the first line of the description of the book, it states it's a Science Fantasy book.
I am in no way saying Mr. Felts review doesn't hold water, it does...when you compare it to the genre of books he writes and the books he gives high marks to. I've of the opinion, Mr. Felts simply isn't the target market for this book.
As a fantasy book with a female main character, written by a female, of course it's going to have "romantic elements." Add to it the fact two brothers want the same girl for somewhat different reasons, and there is all kinds of interesting tension going on!!!
As for the brothers, their backstories make them quiet interesting and prod them along a path of contention with each one another.
The doctor was a wonderfully quirky character!
For me this book was a fun and easy fantasy read. I zipped through it and find myself eager for the next book in the series.
If you are a hardcore Sci-Fi reader, this isn't going to be the book for you. But if you are a fan of fantasy, with characters who have layers, and a touch of romance, you should give this book a spin. I know I'm glad I did!!
