The Stormriders land their splendid winged stallions on the airy battlements of Isse Tower. Far below, the superstitious servants who dwell in the fortress' lower depths tell ghastly tales of evil creatures inhabiting the world outside, a world they have only glimpsed. Yet it is the least of the lowly, a mute, scarred, and utterly despised foundling, who dares to scale the Tower, sneak aboard a Windship, and then dive from the sky.

    " this book was disappointing. the same story could have been told in a book about a quarter of the length. I was unimpressed by the prose and bored through most of it. I am unlikely to read the rest of the trilogy, "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/2/2014

    " Second time I've read this book, I love the description. I like books that are heavy with description but do it in such a way that it isn't blab. A lovely story and a nice start to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 2/2/2014

    " I have read this book 3 or 4 times, the language is rich and fabulous and the story grabbed me from the first chapter. I love the authors use of folk lore and folk tales - which she acknowleds in her sources. The story sets up for a complex twisted trilogy. I heartily recommend the book for fantasy fans and has a wonderful romance at the heart of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/28/2014

    " Bit of a slow start and at times the description is overwhelming, but the story does grip. I just don't need to know the entire contents of store rooms. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miriam | 1/9/2014

    " Way to go, GR, giving away the surprise in the blurb. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 12/25/2013

    " Slow to start...later couldn't put it down. Ended up reading the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon71 | 12/23/2013

    " Thought it slow moving and kinda boring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katherine | 12/6/2013

    " I actually dreaded continuing the book. This book actually put me to sleep. To me I just did not like it was shocked I even picked up at the library but it just didnt get may interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Nicholson | 7/17/2013

    " I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this, and the rest of the series. Sometimes I love it at the end, and sometimes it's not enough, but it was a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 4/16/2013

    " Really liked it! toward the middle i was thinking 3.5 stars but then toward the end i was thinking 4.5! so i went for four stars lol "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Talya | 3/4/2013

    " An AWESOME AWESOME reworking of one of my absolute favorite folktales, but I won't say which one, because you have to read it and figure it out! Brilliant brilliant series! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 9/5/2012

    " Just because you have a thesaurus does not mean you should wield it like a weapon. This is up there with the "Eye of Argon" as the worst fantasy ever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/16/2012

    " I am absolutely head-over-heels in love with Cecilia Dart-Thornton, thanks to this book, and cannot wait to read The Lady of Sorrows. <3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 3/11/2012

    " Oh this book was excellent. A must read. I am definitely going to read the rest of the triology. The thing that I liked most was that it keeps you guessing the whole way through the book wondering what is going to happen next, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy Werner | 2/28/2012

    " I really enjoyed this novel, i literally had to go straight onto book 2 because of the ending, tho things went a little bit stagnant about a quarter way in the rest was truley magical and I love the way it is written. A great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celia Powell | 10/19/2011

    " A nice take on the cliched mystery orphan story in a fantasy world very much inspired by a variety of Celtic myths. I really liked it, and the Celtic mythology aspect as something I enjoyed as well. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suzie Quint | 6/27/2011

    " I read about 100 pages, waiting for something to happen. I finally gave up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/24/2011

    " Brilliant. Cecilia does have a way with words, especially description. This whole series kept me glued to the pages. "

    " Bit of a slow start and at times the description is overwhelming, but the story does grip. I just don't need to know the entire contents of store rooms. "

    " One of the greatest, most underrated fantasy series out there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 10/24/2010

    " Started out slow but the story itself is absolutely amazing and well put together, if you love fairytales this is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Umbellule | 10/24/2010

    " my favourite book at age 11. hesitant to reread, lest childhood memories are ruined. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cupcakencorset | 10/10/2010

    " Love it! Dart-Thornton writes beautifully about characters whose heartbreak and yearnings you completely identify with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pernille | 9/2/2010

    " This book has quite descriptive language and explains a lot of things in very fine detail.
    I love the plot. With the blooming romance between the prince and the mute girl, it truly is delicious to read.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie | 8/22/2010

    " Love it. If your looking for a fantasy book and a romance. Its not as it seems. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jess | 7/25/2010

    " I am what you would call an avid reader. I read anything and everything I can get my hands on, and I always finish a book I've started. This, however, was the only exception. I tried about 4 times to read this book and couldn't get past the first chapter without falling asleep. "
