My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book #1 of the Bakkian Chronicles
I'm going to brief with this Review, which was one of my DSOA picks from March 2013.
The starting book for a series I believe, and a fairly good read. I enjoyed it, and will be looking forward to finding out how the series develops. I definitely feel that there is mileage in the plot. The writing at times was a bit lack lustre though.
That having been said, it was not so bad that it lost any stars from the rating, therefore a healthy 4 stars from me.
It was littered with some errors and bug bears, and you can see the details of them on my Blog - Post #399 in November 2013.
This was one of my DSOA's from 31st March 2013, therefore I downloaded it for free. You can purchase it HERE. The Kindle file is listed at 77p (which is brilliant value for money), and the paperback at £7.07.

Right at the start there was a recurring bug bear, the use of sir Steve, which drove me mad. The Author used Lady Sarah, so why not Sir Steve?
Pileup a few times was another bug bear, when it should really be pile-up.
