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.

HASH(0x9c40c720) out of 5 stars Not the best, but a good solid Ethshar book Nov. 11 2014
By The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kelder of Shulara (Kelder is a very common name in Ethshar) has spent his young life dreaming of leaving his small provincial town with its boring way of life. But armed with a fortuneteller’s predictions, he sets off to find fame, magic and love. When he meets Irith, a magical young woman who can change her form, he finds that his future is coming together. But, there is something disturbing about Irith, and Kelder finds that he has a few questions that must be answered.

I must say, right off, that I am a huge fan of Lawrence Watt-Evans. Admittedly, this is not his best book, but it is a good solid Ethshar book, one that I enjoyed reading. I’m not sure about any hidden meanings, but I did find Kelder’s interaction with this female Peter Pan to be absolutely fascinating.

If you are looking for a book of High Fantasy – of swords and magic, and kingdoms overthrown – then you will be disappointed in this book. However, if you interested in a fascinating book set in a magical milieu, then I highly recommend this book to you.
HASH(0x9c40c450) out of 5 stars OK, not the best Ethshar novel but not awful either . . . Feb. 16 2015
By Michael M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of LWE ever since reading "With a Single Spell" back in the eighties. Ethshar is his signature world, and fans of that series of loosely connected novels will probably enjoy this one too.

As with other Ethshar books, you do not have to read other novels first in order to understand this one . . though if you have read "The Misenchanted Sword" and "Single Spell" you will enjoy the cameos in this novel.

The story was a bit slow to get going, and in the end I found that there was not enough to really care about . . . the characters are flat and their quests are modest in scope. But, if you believe that you need to read all the Ethshar books in order to feel fulfilled, then you should probably read this one too.

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.

By Shawn Swaim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I read the paperback several times. This book was basically a way to tie some of the earlier books. The story can stand on it own but much if you have read the t least the first in the series. I liked it.
Have fun.
