A short read. It doesn't really have a story and ends blandly. It follows in the same make as an epic translated poem, but isn't and can't claim even that interest. But it is short and can make for an afternoon diversion if you don't have anything better to do.
This was one of my first downloads and I was pleasantly pleased by the depth of talent I found in this book. I cared for the characters. the plot moved smoothly. AND IT WAS FREE!! Martha Wells has hooked me. I go to marthawells.com to check out her new stuff. I will be ordering more of her work and am happy to suggest this book to lovers of fantasy fiction.
