Maybe I'm just too old for fantasy books, or it is probably the first person narrative style but I just won't be able to finish this book. I have no complaints with the subject matter. It is an easy to enter fantasy world without the overly complicated names and made up words some use. At points it is hard to distinguish this from a novel written in our plane instead of a mystical one. The first person point of view, in my opinion, brings the reading level down quite a few years. This viewpoint always reminds me of a sixth graders first essay about their summer vacation. I wish Mr. Netto the best in his future writings, and I may try his next offering.
