I feel like I don t have words to adeuately describe this book Beautiful and terrible come to mind Beautiful in the descriptions of the spells the creation of the world and the language Terrible because of the horrific battle scenes and the graphic descriptions those include I will say this this book captivated me I was fascinated by Nieshka s wandering magic and how it complimented the Dragon s The Wood and its sentience was also fascinating if morbid It was very much like an extended fairytale but like the old kind the gritty kindOn a side note I ve read a few reviews that go on about the horrible way Sarkan treats Nieshka and how it s SUCH a bad model for relationships While I agree he isn t the nicest guy sometimes he just seems like the isolated grumpy cat kind of person who s seen too much in his life not the horribly abusive older man taking advantage as he was made out to be by some reviewers Sure he shouldn t call her an idiot but he showed his true character through deed than word and than once demonstrated his willingness to put her before himselfAll in all a book that kept me hooked throughout and rarely slowed down If you aren t too sensitive to some violence I d recommend it
