Review contains spoilers

So there's a lot going on but not a whole lot happening all at the same time, if that makes any sense.

Jek, is a village boy with green eyes, something that is rare, is sent out to go on the well finding expedition, at first his uncle was against his going because he was afraid he would be attracted to the lure,  “Adventure is the lure of fools, and excitement glamour to the gullible. The siren song of the world is as music to the wanderer’s feet, but that dance leads only to the soul-less grave.”

But all that is changed now that the man with two different color eyes is in town asking questions, searching for someone, for something. Karl, is someone from Ez's past who wants to poses the sword because he knows that with it along with the other tailes he has,he will be unstoppable. So Ez sends him off to the expefition with his sword, he has to protect it and he is to NEVER touch it.

Mae, determined to keep an eye on Jek because she loves him so, disguises herself as a boy in order to join Jek in the well finding expedition.

Eventually in his adventures he meets up with an interesting group of people who helps him on his journey to meet up with his uncle.

Kariah is Allosian, something to the humans nothing but a story, the fae, she is on a journey to visit the rulers of the three nations to warn them of her brothers plot to wipe out the human race.  In order to do so she must steal a magical necklace that will help disguise her looks because pale skin and purple hair would call attention in the outside world.

All the while this is happening there is a person? A creature, roaming around who is sucking the life from all he encounters, he his death himself has he likes to think.

So back to what I was getting to when I said there's a lot going on but not a whole lot happening all at the same time. This book seems like it's all about the build up, it's obvious that this is book one of a series. If not then I'll be majorly disappointed. Because it feels like I'm going on this long walk, stopping to check things out and I'm heading somewhere but I don't really know where that is. But I am headed somewhere. If this book doesn't continue, it's going to feel like I just stop walking in the middle of the road and just stood there.

We have a lot of action taking place, we have a lot of characters with there individual things taking place and it will all mix together nicely. When it happens and it started too, but then it ended. :(

I liked the story, I like the characters. It's all tossed into the pot, getting stirred up together now it needs to simmer and cook. I'm looking forward to meal.
