Really - only three words. Entertaining - Vivid - Detailed
There are really so many memorable moments, but -- Kaylin was called to the Lord's office to explain her actions at the orphanage and after revisiting her troubling childhood (in great detail - this was the first glimpse into her past), how she put together a family and how they were taken away from her, the Lord wrapped her in his wings and accepted her explanation. Quite touching.
Teela the female Barani - I just love her hautiness.
This book is so detailed -- it is really difficult to choose only one of anything to talk about. But ... it was quite moving when Kaylin was called to the orphanage to 'heal' one of the children. Kaylin is quite fond of the children. This one was very close to death and proved to be difficult to heal. It turned out that in order to do so, she had to give of herself - her essence (if you will). Then finding out that healling the child put the child, herself and potentially the world in jeopardy.
I was introduced to Michelle Sagara’s work when Audible offered her novella Cast in Moonlight as a free download. I very much enjoyed learning about Kaylin as a child (if you can call her a child as she is quite street-wise).
Michelle Sagara creates very interesting characters – immortals, cat people, winged soldiers. On several occasions I found myself sitting in my car, in my driveway, listening to find out what was going to happen next or waiting to see how a problem was going to be resolved.
I plan on getting the next download in the series.
I am sure the print version is a page-turner, but I think Khristine Hvam out-did herself in interpreting the story and giving life to the charaters.
I would love an answer to this -- I am relatively new to the fantasy genre.
I also very much enjoy Michelle Sagara's
The emotion she puts in her performance elicited tears, amazement, fear - really a total range of emotions.
Impossible, but I found that I couldn't leave my car after I parked. In fact several times, I'd have to restart the car because I NEEDED to see what happened.
An amazing story and performance. I wish I could give this more stars.
