: : : Weeeeeell...not too much happens here, so hard to discuss. The premise outlined in the jacket text comes to be. We don't really know too much about anyone yet, but I am interested and probably would have read ahead if I wasn't so busy with a million othere things.

: : : Now the age old plot device of a young person discovering that they are really the prince (or whatever) of a realm has been done to death, and I wasn't overwhelmed by any greatness of writing, but I was pleasently engaged. The black cloud thingy that denotes who is the heir was pretty interesting and will certainly have ramifications...hopefully sooner rather then later. I want something cool to happen!

: : : Alle

: : i too am mildly interested but not too much yet. i like the cover art, does that count? *l* i thought it was kind of silly how he fell in love with the girl in what seemed like a whole 5 minutes. and i didn't like how some of it was written in present tense, because for some reason that just annoys me. hopefully something really cool happens in the next part!

: : Liara

: I hate present tense too! At least it seems to be only used for the dream/vision device, which I can live with. I like what I've read so far, although some of the dialogue lacks. I also hate the long names she uses, I'm never going to remember any of it to refer to on here!

: - Lannie

You know I didn't even notice the names being long or anything. Guess they didn't annoy me! *l* But like Liara, I hate it when a couple falls in love in a few minutes. They always seem so devoted to each other some books the parted lovers are faithful for years. And they were never really together. Hopefully this book will rise above that.
