Blog tour: Cephrael's Hand partial review

I wanted to post a book review as part of the tour, but it seems as if I won't be able to finish the book in time! I'm still less than midway through the book, according to Kobo, and I don't think I'll have the time the rest of this week to finish reading it.

All I can say at this moment, I'm loving the book. It would be a hefty tome in print (642 pages, I think). When I started reading it, I was strongly reminded of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, but it isn't as long-winded as him (fortunately!) and there aren't annoying girls like Nynaeve, Egwene and Elaine whose constant bickering got on my nerves really fast. 

Melissa McPhail weaves her story lines seamlessly, with new revelations in each chapter that make you hunger for more.
