God Molding: A little flat, but fun

If you are looking for a light hearted book that you can just sit back and enjoy, than this is your book!

It follows closely the mold of reluctant hero, who finally accepts destiny, and then comes to be the most powerful (like god-status) and vanquishes evil. I think their were some really nice deviations, like her romantic independence, and the capability of other female characters besides just the main character. That being said, it's still sweetly simple, and doesn't require a lot of thought. I won't be reading the sequels, but this book is complete enough to be a stand alone.

The narrator

I just want to say that the narrator, Leslie Bellair, is absolutely amazing. She’s got such a pleasant voice, and I love listening to her different accents for characters. I was only an hour into the book before I had to look her up. I hope she sees this, lol.
On a separate note, the book is brilliantly detailed and, once you get used to the new words, pleasant to read. I find Riesl’s character refreshing because she’s not a typical protagonist. But she’s wickedly awesome.

Hard to listen to

Reading a paperback would have been easier. Listening to it was confusing. A lot of the characters has similar sounding names. I finished the book still confused with no desire to read the next one. Three stars overall based purely on the good performance.

Great book, a little slow

Let me start by saying that I love this book and the entire series. The reason I gave it only 4 stars is because out of the trilogy, this book is the slowest. That said, the character development is believable and complex enough to be interesting. Reisil begins as a somewhat whiney character, but evolves throughout the course of the book. For animal lovers, this is an awesome fantasy book that have animals play a main role (but not in a cliche'd way). Overall: Highly recommend this book and the entire series.

Love this Novel

I just loved this novel when I found it a few years ago in my local store. The narrator does a wonderful job of bringing the pages to life.
