The Waterborn (Children of the Changeling, #1)The Waterborn by Greg Keyes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I fell in love with this book the more I read it. I can honestly say this is a gem in the fantasy genre. The writing is solid and intelligently devised with no glaring grammatical issues. I feel the plot is just this side of original with enough of a fresh take that it feels unique. The same can be said for the characters who while at first feel familiar take on a fresh feel with depth and well layered personalities. They are easy to connect with and to feel that emotional tug as you are along for their journey. The world comes to life around the characters in a refreshingly detailed way. After reading this I thought back over the experience looking for anything I didn’t like. I didn’t find anything so I can give this all five stars with ease. Overall this is a very enjoyable fantasy read I can easily recommend to everyone. I received an e-arc through Open Road Media in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion which may or may not mirror your own – and that’s perfectly fine with me.
