The First Enhancer 28. März 2012
Von Book Hoarder And Proud Of It - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I had read and enjoy the book The Enhancer so when I saw this one about the first enhancer I had to get it. I was not disappointed, in fact it was better the first one in the series. It covers Lanora's life from 18 to 50 years old. It should also be a the first and second enhancers. It has love, loss, love, war, and gods.

Solid enjoyable read, but nothing special 6. Juli 2012
Von Mvargus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is interesting in that it follows one main character over a period of more than two decades as they take up a quest for a god and pursue their duties with patient diligence.

The characters were interesting, but a little flat. Most seemed more like ideas that were never fleshed out and more than a few characters appeared to have no motivation for their actions. I could almost picture an actor asked to play some of the parts reading the script and then saying "I don't understand my character. What's my motivation?"

Overall the story reads smoothly and quick. The heroine is interesting and the challenges aren't too outlandish.

For lovers of stories of intrigue this plays out well. The plot involves protecting somehting while also helping a number of people solve problems, some of which they don't even realize they have. However, there is almost no action, and the final climax is sedate compared to most fantasy tales.

I cannot really recommend this book. It's good and I did end up pushing through to the end of the story rather than waiting for my next lunchtime reading session, but it's not one I can ever see myself reading again. There just wasn't enough emotion in the story.

I really enjoyed this book. 7. September 2012
Von Brent Lee Markee - Veröffentlicht auf

I read a lot of fantasy, and came across this one night whilst bored out of my mind. I devoured it and The Enhancer within a day or two, and enjoyed them both very much. It wasn't perfect, but it kept my attention and kept me going until it was over, and that's what I want in a book. Great characters, and an interesting world and magic. I would check out this author's work should she venture into fantasy again.

The First Enhancer:

I have to admit to having really enjoyed McCullough’s novel. Within the story she explores the intricacies of creating a “special” kind of people serving their respective Gods, which will become the pillars of their religion, I would suspect. Her concept is that of a select group of people gifted by the skill of enhancing, which came across as credible and…well, handy to me. On the most part it describes the pitfalls of a life of sacrifice and toils, though, done in a way that leaves the reader with simple information rather than emotional turmoil.

Writing style:
Though dotted with some typos, in particular in the beginning of the tale, and missing some explanations that I needed, to know where the heck I was at, I could soon see where she was going at a steady pace. There were enough complications to keep it interesting, but not so many that I got lost in them.
Her voice, straightforward and meticulous, had some resemblances to Jack Vance, in my opinion. I liked her style, which was strong and consistent, except that I would have liked the author to apply a bit more flamboyance, some risks in her actual sentence structure and descriptions. To me it came across more as a classy, well detailed documentary about an interesting subject, rather than Hollywood drama, if that makes any sense.
There were times when basic description went on longer than necessary, while at others (in particular at dramatic times) the information was supplied as almost an afterthought. I love it when the author is able to wrench out my heart at life-altering scenes, which didn’t happen, much to my regret.

The characters:
McCullough’s lead character, Lanora, was fleshed out well. She consistent in her character traits, and as the story worked itself to completion, she managed to grow into someone “real”. The one regret I have is first person narrative, because it gave me very little insight in the other main characters. Still, kudos in making me like Lanora for who she was. I like reading a story and wonder in the end if I at some time will see more of this character; this happened.

There is some, but it is brought much like the drama: There, to the point but unspecific, and not lingered upon. Respectful for young readers for sure.

McCullough put together and entertaining story that reminded me why I enjoy Fantasy. I will definitely recommend it to anyone in the mood for a solid fantasy adventure into her world of the Enhancers.
