Ok, first things first. I picked up this book via my Kindle because of its price (free). And for a free ebook, it is more than worth its cost, which is your time. I would not have been upset if I had paid a small amount to purchase this book.
Now, onto the book review itself. This is a simple tale that relies upon the tried and true fantasy formula of a "nobody" coming into their own as a previously undiscovered prodigy has been used by many fantasy authors. This formula therefore requires either significant character development or a type of twist to the story to rise to the five star rating. While this first book utilizes this formula, the character development is still somewhat lacking and even the "education" process wherein the heroine in this book learns to control her power is simplistic and repetitive. If the author was attempting to write fantasy targeted at a child or young teenager, this might be appropriate, but I did not get that impression. I believe this was fantasy that was to be consumed by an adult audience, therefore the lack of sophistication compels me to remove a star from five to four.
So why did I give this book a three star rating? Editing! It is a shame that a good tale should suffer from clunky language, and both grammatical and spelling errors. A professional editor could definitely assist the author in polishing this story. At that point I would be happy with a four star rating for this story.
So overall, as it currently stands, I give this tale three out of five stars. A good read, one that I would not mind paying a small sum for, and definitely worth the current cost of only your time.
