Reading the reviews I found several readers complaining about how the story slips back and forth from past to present tense. Being an avid reader I found this ingenious. When past tense was being used we were being told a story of what was happening. As the story slipped into present tense we were being invited to become involved in the story, to become a part of it. I live with chronic pain and reading Is a much-needed distraction from the pain and find this storytelling style refreshing.

I was enchanted by a story that made hard work and talent a powerful force. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I was very impressed with this book,and I'd say it is one of Modesitt's better novels. I especially liked the imagery and action. I didn't read it. I lived it. I enjoy Modesitt's work, and look forward to any other works put out.
