One of my most favorite feelings is that of captivating characters. That realisation that characters will live on, spilling back into your memory long after reading about them. This is how I feel about Elmiryn & Nyx, the two heroes of the story.
They are so oddly matched it just works. Both of them have a past that haunts them, and a are very much in need of a friend. Ultimately, this is what the book is about. Companionship; finding strength in others.
Nyx is a shapeshifter. Isolated and on the run, she meets Elmiryn, a warrior who saves her life. The two become unlikely allies and find themselves on a quest that not only tests their physical and mental strength, but also their growing friendship.
The story is written in from the character's perspectives. Sometimes we are Nyx, sometimes Elmiryn. This keeps the story moving, however, I did find myself doubling back over paragraphs.
That said, Montoya has a wonderful writing style that, at times, was quite refined.
Definitely a must read for lovers of fantasy.
I'm sure there will be more from these characters in the future.
