An enjoyable young adult fantasy novel. The plot is interesting, and the world is richly developed. I like the characters, and the growing bond between Vek and Koreh is a joy to read. No insta-love just two young men growing to know, understand, and love each other. The war between the Gods is an interesting one, and it shows a complexity lacking in many other young adult fantasty novels. I look forward to learning more about these characters, and their world.
