The act of character creation is different for every artist/author by definition. I abhore authors or editors (hell, anyone) that try to dictate the way in which someone is creative. Instead, I believe that everyone has to develop their own creative process. Often times those methods are a patchwork of activities and actions similar (or even identical) to what another author’s and probably more often, they are a developed through an author’s own experiences and efforts. Everyone does things differently, and my method for thumb nailing characters is probably far different from most others.
I must start this out by saying that this book was not what I expected. I really don’t know what I expected, but this wasn’t it. I had heard online good things about the author so I decided to try her out. This was the first of her books that I’ve read. I intend to read more.
This book is an epic (and heroic) fantasy, a genre I like very much. Though I won’t try to compare this book to the masters, it has a depth of history and a magic system that is the challengereally strong. I was very impressed and happily surprised.
