There stands a twisted tower.. hidden in the Windhome Mountains. Something is imprisoned there – the Sisterhood of Stars does not know precisely what, but something is bound tight with a wizard’s spell so that it can never escape again. Kayl is one of the few to have looked upon the Twisted Tower. She has no desire to see it again – she left the Sisterhood long ago, settling down to a quiet life. Her sword lies unused in a secret place beneath the stones of her hearth. But something evil is leaking from the Tower. And now a sorceress and a wizard have appeared on Kayl’s doorstep, demanding she take up the sword again.
I found this book to be highly confusing. I found myself turning a page and a big chunk of time had passed by and relationships had developed that we as a reader had no background information about.
I found it frustrating that a lot of the characters seemed to be chatting to each other about what they were going to do without actually doing anything.
I found flaws in the historical parts of the novel. I just felt like they did not fit into the novel.
The writing style of the author was interesting and to be honest was the only reason I kept reading till the end. The descriptive language used throughout was very well executed and added a lot to the novel.
Overall this novel just was not for me however I acknowledge that a lot of hard work has went into creating this fantasy world and I am sure it will be enjoyed by many people.
