In this book I was most impressed with was how Stuart Hill made his characters come alive with his choice of words. Talking about his word choice his word choice was so spectacular they seemed to flow together so nicely. He is able to make the characters that are myths come alive. How he sets the emotions in the story is amazing because he is able to switch the character from being happy than sad the next.One thing I wish Stuart Hill did diferently was that I wish he gave some discriotion of the Ice Troll war. 
   

This book is a page turner you just have to know what's on the next page. Stuart Hill put so much detail and emotions into the characters. They just seem to come alive right before your eyes. And at some points in the book you feel yourself become one with the characters. And thinking no don’t do this or that.
   

This book is amazing. If you love adventure mixed with war and love and broken hearts then this is your book. Now it’s up to you to decide your fate and chose what paths you want to take. So what path will you take?
