The range and clarity of the beings in the story is great, from tree dwellers, to flying horses, elemental gods and blue skinned princes; you are quickly intrigued by their variety and captured by their personalities. This battle of good vs evil has themes of racism, jealousy, greed and betrayal running through it, and some romance is thrown in there as well. As is often the case with Cash's books, there are some social messages imbedded in the story, but I will leaves those for you to figure out for yourselves. The narration on the audiobook is excellent, he creates individual voices for the characters and transports you on a journey to the world created by Cash. My only criticism is that some of the story was a bit rushed at the end and I would have liked to have seen V'Sair's romantic relationship be longer in its development.
