    This was SO NOT my kind of book People with weird names, living in a place with two moons, for crying out loud BUT the story won me over It was completely involving, even mesmerizing at times.We meet A monk who struggles to find something to believe in.An artist who crosses the line into illegality by painting with colors Two men who need to solve the mystery of weaponry t...

    I read this quite a while ago 2 years felt it had a few too many problems to give it 4 stars Maybe it does, but then again, I still remember it very well think about it occasionally No 3 star book does that, so i think I was being grumpy No, don t laugh It happens occasional...

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Books with settings in other worlds have so much potential I decided to read this one because of how colours were are a bad thing How can this be Aren t colours all around us I was intrigued I just hoped that the author could write a satisfying story about it To my delight, the plot was well thought out and it was very believable I loved how the characters shifted how they saw the world when any illegal colours were brought into their lives It was as if they went from seeing a tree in black and white to actually seeing it as various shades of greens and browns.In Frost s world, owning anything colorful can land you in serious trouble For example, pictures in your home can be pencil or charcoal sketches, but a colorful painting of a bowl of fruit is illegal But you re not limited to just paintings Colorful outfits and even stained glass are illegal If you re caught with any sort of coloured item, you could do some serious jail time, or even be sentenced to death Why is this Because colour can corrupt the mind.Setting up ...

    I am the string that links the beads Excellent story involving an ensemble cast who don t work out their interrelatedness until later in the story The story telling was simplistic at first but improved as the book progresse...

    On the harsh militant world of Sindorus, where even colours are considered sinful, three people living very separate lives are about to have those lives change forever As deceptions are torn away, and ancient secrets brought to light, they each must struggle to find the missing pieces to the puzzleanswers that will unlock their true destiny.Idrith, bitter and trapped in a life he never chose, is the first to discover his own fear filled mystery Obsessed with finding the truth behind the lies he turns to the one person he has always tried to avoid the mysterious pilgrim, Harmion.Aztar s military promotion comes with an unexpected burden A serious problem threatens the security of the entire Northerner regime and it seems that their only hope may lie in the hands of someone he was raised to think of as his enemy and inferior Each day they struggle together to find a solution, but at night Aztar struggles alone as the secret he s kept hidden since childhood returns to torment him.In a world where most women...

    I must admit I m a sucker for good covers, so when I picked up First Light, I was sceptical.I need not have been, as it turns out The book had me enthralled from the very first page to the very last Not one second was boring and not one word was irrelevant One of my favourite parts about the book is how all the characters link in the most unpredictable and fascinating ways I was delighted every time a new link between characters was revealed Another favourite part was how much I identified with quite a few of the characters They were so human that they came to life in my head The plot was amazing, to say the least Very original ...

    When I first started this book I had high expectations I mean, after having seen so many great reviews and so many great things having been said, especially the claim that it was an Award Winning Author per the cover , I thought to myself Thank God, finally a good book Well, lets just say that things didn t quite turn out the way that I d anticipated I suppose the best way to start is by telling you a little bit about the characters and the plot line.There are three main characters in this story, each one from the same world, but different ways of life There is Idrith who is angry at the cards that he has be dealt in life Then there is Aztar, who is a military man that has a great burden to bear, and finally there is Daen who is a female brought up with a sliver spoon.The world is called Sindorus and it is a place without color as color is illegal, and anyone who uses things of color is considered an outlaw and is then condemned by the law sometimes to death.So, while I thought that the premise of the story was interesting and intriguing, I am sorry to report that things were not as expected.Following you ll find my Pros and Cons I ll start with the Pros since there are not many to be had The story idea I find that the premise is pretty unique and potentially a great basis for a fantasy story There was something about the story line that was otherworldly and reminded somewhat of The Last Air Bender Not sure why that was, but I guess that s the direction...

    I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.This is an awesome book We are introduced to the three main characters in the first three chapters We meet Idrith, a young man who lives in a monastery This was not by his choice Idrith, as a young boy goes to live with his uncle due to a scandal and death in his family Life with his uncle is not easy He knows his uncle can t stand him He and his cousin Aztar become very close They share secrets they would not dare tell anyone else Idrith follows his father into the monastery His father is well liked For Idrith it seems like a prison until he meets Harmion and finds a secret room.Daen s family owns land that once grew Rae trees Rae trees are vital to Sindorous As the trees have died they have started to raise milk giving animals Daen s mother died giving birth to her Unlike most women, Daen was raised with many of the freedoms that boys had She was free to read than others, climbed trees, and ask as man y questions as she wanted This was great until she was promised in marriage so that her family land would always be hers The nobleman s son she was to marry had great aspirations He definitely would not allow her the freedoms...

    Reviewed on behalf of The Review BoardSindorus is a harsh militant world Daen is an exception to the norm a northern female brought up knowing how to read and write, and make her own decisions Idrith chose monastic life young, when tragedy struck his family Aztar, in his quest for the approval of his father, sets his sights on becoming the youngest Zah Har Controller ever The Zah Riel has built this society and its religion based on secrets and lies Pilgrim Harmion has a mission that will change everything.I found myself hooked by this book straight away There were some slow bits where my attention wanted to wander, but on the whole, it was a good read The author has a fantastic imagination, and is obviously at home in the fantasy genre Unfortunately, the book has been let down badly by appalling spelling, punctuation and grammar A lot of these mistakes are basic, and would be weeded out with even a perfunctory proofread Words have been confused, such as using taught for taut , past for passed , etc There are lots of words missing, and lo...
