Many characters speak the same way.
It doesn't matter if they are a human barbarian or a dragon, they all use same words or sentences. Also, I often felt that the characters talk as if they are reading from a book. Thirdly, what is Furey's fascination with horses? When she is not describing them, people talk about them, or feed them, or clean them.
All in all, the book is not bad, but it's nothing excellent either. I recommend it if you are into fantasy and don't have anything else to read. What a slowly paced book. The last half of it took dedication to finish and felt like pulling teeth to get anywhere.
I would not recommend this book to my friends, at all. I will admit, I bought it based on the cover and it sounded good from the back. Since I've finished the book it has gone straight to the sell pile. However, I did enjoy some of the characters. Others I was hoping would die as it would at least end their plot involvement and maybe move some of the story along.
It seemed li Ugh. It seemed like every chapter it bounced around between way too many characters that I never really warmed up to many of them. Most of the characters were predictable and very two dimensional. I think the pacing of this book could have been increased significantly to actually achieve something.
I had silly hopes that by the end of the book the plot would have been concluded, or at least SOME part of the plot would have been resolved. No such luck. I have no desire to read the next, except for a review that has spoilers. The reason this gets two stars vs. I felt a lot could have been improved upon and what was there had potential.
But it was put together in such a fashion that it fights it's true goal, which is to tell a story. Apr 14, Ashleigh Oldfield rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the book that first got me into the genre of fantasy fiction. I read the first page about 20 times and couldn't get beyond that. Furey creates such a colourful world that you can believe in. My take on the book is that this world is where humans could well end up during an apocalypse situation, and are now destroying their second home.
The characters have depth and are not all-good or all-bad; you c This is the book that first got me into the genre of fantasy fiction.
The characters have depth and are not all-good or all-bad; you can see the diversity in each character's personality. They are people that I would actually want to know, rather than people who just make for a good story.
Furey enables you to see the brutality of life in such a graphic way that I yelled out in horror at some points. If you like dragons and fire drakes!

Mar 02, T J rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book very much. As all beginning series it started out slow because of telling of past history, letting know who all the characters are, what the countries are like. But once that is all said and done the story picks up to a exciting adventure.
This not a tale of just one central character but many well rounded and full story lines. This world is made up of Dragons, humans, vampires, mythical beast, and possible aliens. I am always on search for new authors who can take me deep in I enjoyed this book very much. I am always on search for new authors who can take me deep into their worlds and Maggie Furey is now one of them.
OK, complexity of people felt it should have been a second book in a series, didn't get introduced to characters enough to sort them out in my mind, kept forgetting who was who, especially those who had more than one name. Ends like an episode in a series, lots unfinished, presumably so you download the next book. Only if it's cheap, as far as I'm concerned. Aug 31, Claudia Cristina rated it really liked it. For about the first 5 chapters or so I was wondering why the hoo-ha about her books , it seemed a bit boring , a lot of reminiscencing , slow but The plot thickens and starts to take unexpected twists and turns and before you know it you are hooked and cant wait to finish the book.
However it has no definite end, you have to continue to the next book. Book one of the trilogy. Again, this was one of those "I randomly grabbed it off the shelf in the bookstore" finds..
They were really great though, and Veldan was such an interesting heroine.. Anyway, yeah. If you like fantasy, it's really, really fun.
Aug 05, Melanie rated it it was ok. This book was sooooo slowly paced. It took me forever to finish. I read other things in between. However, I wish I really do wish to know what happens to the characters. I read this growing but remembered I loved it. The story was captivating and it introduced me to a new style of writing as she changed characters in each chapter; the end of each left me wanting more.
Apr 14, warren pyatt rated it it was amazing. Aug 29, Maria rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Good trashy fantasy is hard to find. Maggie Furey tried, but this is mediocre trashy fantasy, at best.

Dean Pyper. Jacquelyn Smith. Guardians Legacy. The world of Myrial is racing toward apocalypse. For aeons, its mysterious Curtain Walls have functioned to separate realm from realm, and race from race, so that each cordoned area remains a sanctuary for its species. But now the miraculous walls that have provided order for so long are disintegrating with disastrous results.
Mingling climates are causing unrelenting rains or deadly droughts, while warlike races are preying mercilessly on the helpless and meek.
And the carnage will only grow worse unless a seasoned woman-warrior, a brazen firedrake, and a venerable Dragon with amazing telepathic powers—all trusted members of the Shadowleague—succeed where everyone else has failed. For they must first locate the heart of Myrial, where the secret for undoing this disaster resides. In order to reach their goal, however, they must overcome treachery, intrigue, and evil—and a mysterious figure from the past whose actions threaten to tear the Shadowleague apart.
