I Love The Darkwater Saga!
Finding clean, interesting, AND well-written fantasy can be pretty tough these days, but this book and the others in the Darkwater saga definitely fall under this category! (I’ve read all of them;))
You MUST read!!!
Love his other books as well! You don't find clean books this well written and intriguing very often!
An intricately woven fantasy novella!
This novella did a marvelous job of drawing me into the fantasy realm that Patrick has created. I’m captivated by the idea that there are individuals that are gifted and they have the ability to pass their gifting on to an heir before they die. I’m looking forward to seeing how this progresses in future books in this series.
Willet is an absolutely fascinating character. He is able to read others and relate to people in different levels of society. I thoroughly enjoyed trying to understand him and his past. I know that there are going to be more facets revealed about him.
It does take a little effort to try and understand the nuances of a totally different realm but this novella is well worth the effort.
