Mar 21, 2011: Recently had some time off and while surfing for blogs of interest, I came upon this sweet little gem. I did a whirlwind three day marathon to read all of the current 49 chapters. And now that I am all caught up, I have to say that I am in love.
In several one word descriptives I’d call this tale:
Fast-Paced (sometimes a little too much so especially as regards development of character relationships)
Inventive (The names are new as are the indigenous races)
The tale begins with a brother and a sister on the run from an abusive father. They are in search of their long lost mother about whom they know close to nothing and can barely recall. Along the way they make friends, learn that they have powers and gifts up till then left untapped, and run into one road block after another.
Unfortunately, they also come to realize that they aren’t just running from their father, but an evil entity, that the author, has still to give us details about.
The fact that the characters have mishaps and mistakes and that they are time after time hemmed up by seemingly unbeatable circumstances make this story feel like it was written by a real pro.
Most importantly, the characters, while they could still use a little fleshing out, are strong enough to make us, the audience, care about what happens to them.
This story isn’t some deep mystical tale with "big words" that make you contemplate your life’s purpose. There are no crazy long chapters. It comes to us every Friday in bite-sized chunks of fun and excitement.
I recommend it big time. I’ll be there each week for more.
