Good read for people looking for a classic epic fantasy novel. Would have had more stars but the story was a little bit predictable. I kept waiting for something to happen that would mix it up but it carried on pretty much as I expected. This will probably not be an issue for most people so don't let my comments put you off if what you are looking for is a well told epic fantasy story. I was also confused by Tenya's easy dismissal of her father (despite his flaws) and her complete acceptance of her newfound powers and unknown mother in very little time. She always knew how to get herself out of trouble by conveniently figuring out the solution and mastering her fears and I thought she could have had a little more internal conflict. Other than that, good work by the author.
