Review by NickF.
I was skeptical when I opened this book for some reason. I think it was because I've read past reviews on other websites and none look that good. Nevertheless I decided to give it a try (since I picked the book up at a used bookstore). I don't regret giving it a chance although I wouldn't reread this book either. Once is enough for me. There's too many near death situations and last minute rescues that it gives the book a feeling that it should be a low budget made for TV (or direct to DVD) film. It has its light moments where you chuckle to yourself but the bad crap the main character goes through makes you think it's going to be one of those tragic hero characters that make you want to roll your eyes and go for another novel. If it's not one thing, it's another for Soldier (what kind of a stupid name is that?) Also, I don't know what the author was on when she was inventing some of these names....and I know authors like to get creative and think of unique strange names for their fantasy plot. But... names like HoulluoH (spelling like it is in the novel) and Wwssxxyynn (could be because she's not human) ??????? did the author just pound her hands on a keyboard and out came a name? that's something that irked me.
