    Thanks for your feedback!

    Astonishly well written. I'd like more.

    I came to this novel having read Innerscape and The Vintage Egg. I loved Innerscape which came as a surprise because I'm not really imaginative enough to manage full on scfi/fantasy. I was a little nervous of Vokhtah because of that. It is VERY alien. The creatures, the planet, the culture, the language and the descriptions are all alien. Because of this I read it far more slowly than I usually read as I struggled initially to visualise the characters within the story. I'm so glad I stuck with it though; through the magic osmosis of excellent writing by the time I was about a third to half way through I was flying (about as well as a Plodder!) and had a mental map of the societal structure remembering which character was which and had begun to bond with them. That's important for me - I need this to enjoy a book. This has been an excellent foray into a realm I've never managed before; filled with beautifully evocative glimpses of life on Vokhtah - it honestly feels as though AC Flory has spent time there. I started this expecting I'd not enjoy it. I completed it wanting to know more of the Apprentice - and the Messenger; but mostly the Apprentice who is going to change the world. Here's hoping there's another on it's way. Never be forgotten In case you are interested - I give 5 stars to books I want to reread and often buy as gifts after reading AND want to buy the whole of the author's back catalogue, 4 to ones I immediately want to buy the entire back history and 3 to books I enjoy but don't quite meet those criteria. If something doesn't at least meet a 3 star, then I won't review it - I don't have the skill or the talent to write so who am I to criticise someone who does.
