There was something about Terrel's tale that compelled me From it's astounding detail and awareness of the natural world of its protagonist and characters to varying cycles of the four moons that exist in that world there laid an air of mystery around the Dark Moon that left me breathless and eager to find out 'Does Terrel survive'Being a cripple isn't easy Now having glassy shard like eyes might have sounded like immediate execution for a character like TerrelHis and Alyssa's magic are bestowed most unusually Yet it's his development and gradual learning of his powers through his journey that is a prominent strength in the Guardian Cycle series to be reviewed further

Been foreseen was the fact that there would be two imperial children born that night Jax the firstborn is raised in the Imperial Palace and groomed for his role as the future leader of The Floating Islands Terrell second born and hideously disfigured. This book was a pleasant surprise I got it from a second hand bookstore prior to leave for a long flight and my rule that day was to pick up a book from an author or a series I have never heard about It turned out to be a great choice The world is original; the civilization is built upon islands that are floating around the ocean according to tides that are caused by the interaction of four moons These four moons do not only control the movement of the islands since their interaction will also affects how crops will grow as well as other events such as earthuake predictions and thus the day today life on these islands is based on the astronomical study of these moonsThe story is not extraordinary twins are born on a night were a great hero the Guardian was predicted to be born The first born is a perfectly formed baby while is brother is a cripple with strange eyes and thus he is discarded into a mental institution in favor of the beautiful baby that is obviously going to grow up as the prophesized hero or is he Both children have hidden talents but when the Islands begin to spin out of control in danger of colliding with the main continents the prophecy begins to unfoldSome story developments became obvious after a few chapters; however what I liked the most was the mysteries surrounding this world From time to time we get glimpses of past events 400 years ago that shaped the current civilization and prophecies and you just want to know about it The mysterious fixed landmass called continent home of barbarian civilization or so we think are also intriguing Honestly while reading I felt like when I was watching the TV show Lost and that some new elements were added up from time to time and not very much explained and it kept me going on wanting some moving forward to the second book I believe there are lots of things yet to discover about this series

This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me which appear on a timely scheduleThe prophesy says that the Gaurdian will be born when the four moons of the Empire align Yet when that fateful night comes there are twims born Jax fat and healthy and Terrell with strange eyes and deformed limbs Naturally Terrell is sent away but is it the right choice How will they find the Guardian in time Initially the reader knows very little about Terrell because he knows very little about himself The use of a third person narrator allows the reader to see and experience but not to feel too much Eventually the reader begins to sympathise with him because who could resist a withered wraith who has lost all his friend I appreciate that Gray introduced Terrell first instead of Jax It makes Jax appear shallow and conniving which is of course what his mother has made himThere are a series of deaths suggesting corruption in the capital A gradual revelation of the powers Jax and Terrell have doesn't help with the confusion However it seems like Terrell got all the good ualities of personality and all the bad ones of appearance He makes the most of it however and that is what makes him the likable character for meThe writing style of this novel is a lot heavier than most teenage fictions leading me to classify it as an adult fantasy novel However if you enjoy fantasy and are a strong reader a teenager is likely to enjoy it Certainly there are some adult themes sex death rape but Gray treats these with beautiful delicacyIf Juliet Marillier is a 910 and Mercedes Lackey is normally a 1010 this novel would be an 810 It's good but it seems to be lacking something in the first half of the novel Perhaps the emptiness I'm feeling comes from the fact that it is the first book in a series and little seems to be happening except the setup of the plot for the other two novels However it does eventually reach uite a satisfying if somewhat predictable conclusion I'm looking forward to the next book for sure I picked up three books for a bargain 15 at my local opshop so I'm not complainingEdited to add I won't be reading and reviewing the other two novels I own of this series at the moment because the fifth book is out of print and not available at my local library This is very disappointing for me I really wanted to read the whole set If anyone had a copy and wanted to sellgive it to me I would be very grateful
