My appreciation of any text is based entirely upon an emotional interaction with characters, plot, and base premise of a novel or story.
Read the story now
My normal preference for fiction is always Sic-Fi or Horror, I think it is a true testament to this story that I was completely absorbed in to a fantasy driven world, that brought hints of Pratchett, Tolkien, and Rowling to mind.
With fast passed emotionally driven scenes, thought provoking treatment of a "second class" sentient race, and the enjoyable growth of characters throughout their journeys. I would encourage all to read Temper: Firestorm.
With hints of satire and true connection to the characters, this story makes for a good reward the reader.
