This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
From the pen of Muffy Morrigan, author of the Custodes Noctis Series, comes a new adventure of a futuristic world of space exploration, rediscovered magic and a new age of tall ships with all the action and drama that is the stuff of legends and heroes. Tristan is the most talented Weaver the Guild has produced. Since he was a child and started his training to become a Weaver of the great sails of the Navy’s galactic ships, he’s had no idea what fate had planned for him. Then came the Winged Victory, the largest ship ever built, and he is given the task of Weaving her magical sails. With a unique bond and friendship with the Dragon Fenfyr and in the face of hostile politics, prejudice and the threat of invasion by a horrifying enemy known as the Vermin, Tristan sets out on an unexpected adventure and discovers all is not as it seems. There are forces who want to win against the Vermin no matter what the cost. Struggling against enemies from within and without, Tristan and his companions fight to save the Winged Victory and the last hope of survival for humanity.
This book is not for anyone! Moreover, I don’t say this, because it’s bad but for the simple fact that, this isn’t easy to read and it’s pardon my words Hardcore Fantasy. I’m not sure words can express what an impact this book made on me.
I didn’t think of skipping a single word thought out the whole book!
I had a bit of trouble getting started on the book. It was interesting and all, but the language took some getting used too, and to be honest I’m not sure I fully grasped it once I finished the book. It was a little confusing at times when they mentioned the time. A description of their usage of time can be found at the start of the book but in the end I decided that it didn’t change a whole lot to the plot whether you knew the time or not.
What really had me sold on this book are the characters for sure. It contains so many great individualities. I fell in love with the main character. His personality and moral code is truly admirable. It takes skill to form a character the reader can emphasize with on this level and I’m truly grateful for this reading experience. I like the fact that none of the characters is even remotely similar, they all contain their own strengths and weaknesses and I’m sure everyone will pick a character they identify with.
I feel that this book could easily become a series of books, because there’s so much more to continue with, the world the book revolves around is limitless, it’s infinite. Literally. The following book or books could become any genre the author wanted the possibilities are endless.
I’d recommend this in a heartbeat! If you like fantasy, sci-fi, and an awesome writing style this should be on your list of books to read.
