I was drawn in, like an un-suspecting prey in a spider's web. Feeling confident that I would navigate thru easily. Only to discover to my delight that this book is clearly just the beginning. Wonderful foundation of fascinating characters, maps/worlds, language, clans, groups and so much more,
with easy referencing at the back of book to flip to. I love being able to go to the author's website to see what the characters actually look like!
At the point that you start to doubt your over-confidence, the author makes you aware that Fate is confused as well, so maybe you're on the right track after all, or maybe not...which makes it more exciting.
This book abounds with puzzles/mazes/questions/clues that promise clarity down the road making it obvious that there is a lot more to come.
The characters are interesting, each in there own way. However; I am soooo curious about Akira in particular, he is such an enigma to me. I hope to see more of him in the future.
I plan to re-read Rota Fortunae (like GOT & all great stories) chock full of clues that you miss the 1st time around, yet are there hiding in plain sight when you look again. Wish Conundrum was coming out sooner, can't wait to buy it in November. She D.
This book is true to its genre, in the sense that it does begin (and end) with plenty of world building (as well as additional learning material at the end so you can learn as much or as little as you like about the world you'll be reading about). I was both surprised and delighted by how quickly and deftly the characters were introduced and the fact that Fate's story really got the attention it deserved (after all, what's a story without characters?) I really loved Fate's story and her character and the authors used this to brilliant effect, introducing other characters (who I assume will be explored more fully in future installments) through Fate's lens, without losing focus like so much fantasy literature does. This story has a very clear through-line, which I greatly appreciated.
Another thing I appreciated was how well the segue into the next installment was handled. While there are some questions remaining to be answered, this book works just as well as a singular work. There's a clear beginning and a satisfying ending. Too many times I've read "series" type books where the end of one volume basically made it so that you had to read the next volume or nothing would make sense and you'd be left without closure. That isn't the case with this book. If, for some reason, no more volumes were released, the main story is tied up wonderfully and the reader wouldn't be left feeling cheated.
This introductory volume (the beginning) really worked well developing the relationships in Fate's life, and her story. I especially enjoyed her character development and the way Hero (Another name with a possibly misleading double meaning) and Fate grew as a result of their relationship/interplay, and their mutual character development was a joy to read.
My son is reading this now, on my recommendation, and I'm sure he'll love it, because he's a fan of the genre already. I think it speaks volumes of the authors' talent in weaving a tale that I loved it as well, even though I'm not a fan of the genre.
This book is well worth the read and I would recommend it to any fan of Fantasy (epic or otherwise)
The characters are enjoyable, each with their own unique (non-stereotypical) personalities, which brings you into the mood and tone of the story. It’s easy to get immersed in their world and enjoy things for what they are.
Highly recommend this book. It is written in an interesting way that makes you think and become highly involved with the characters. Haven’t read anything this thought provoking in a long time.
