Format: Mass Market Paperback
Overall the book is worth a read, if you want to read the whole Ethshire collection. But if you want to read a good story look at some of Watt-Evans other books. The story centers on a young man, going in search of his fortune, a tired old cliche, he runs across a young woman with wings who doesn't want to grow up and has the magic behind her to make it happen. He faces the problem of falling in love with the perpetual child as he himself grows up. Add to this situation an old man, magicly smitten with the adolescent angel. The best part is a cameo appearance of Valdar the innkeeper, from The Misenchanted Sword, a much better book.

Read It! Aug. 7 2007
By John R. Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Let's see: This is an Ethshar series book and is therefore an excellent read. That may sound like a bold statement, but it is a fact. Before you run out and buy it I recommend that you start at the beginning with the first book "The miss enchanted sword", that way you will understand what is going on. Get the whole series and enjoy many hours wasting time reading about a world of total fantasy.

Note: This applies to every book in the series, I have read them all.
Hardcover please! Jan. 16 2007

Sorry LWE, but . . . . Dec 11 2002
By Carrie Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'd like to apologize to LWE for writing this, since he is by far my favorite author. I realize that this is his most beloved Ethshar novel, but I could barely get through this book both times I read it. I read it twice just to make sure I didn't gloss over some deeper hidden meaning. I didn't. This book is about a journey. A rather loooooong one. I felt like I was there, too, eating all the dust and sweating in the sun with them. I just missed all the fun that I really think LWE wanted in the tale. Try any of the other Ethshar stories, you won't be disappointed.
