Y and so she must go to the Hold―the only place her talents can be trained On her way she crosses paths with Strell a wandering musician from the plains And though Alissa is not sure she can trust a plainsman Strell has something she needs―one. Alissa a young 20ish woman has set out on a journey to a mythical “Hold” where she is to hone her magical abilities much like her father had done before her The problem is that she thinks it a fool’s errand due to the ludicrous idea of magic existing at all much less a mystical Hold where prior magicians had learned their skills Strell a wandering musicianstoryteller from the plains meets her on the journey and together they make their way to where they believe the hold may be Their journey is fraught with danger and their own prejudices against each otherI’ve had this 4 book series on my shelf for uite some time and they likely would have languished there for much longer had I not discovered that the author’s name Dawn Cook is actually a pen name for the well regarded Kim Harrison author of the best selling “Hollows” series I’m happy I took the plunge because this first book while following a somewhat typical fantasy plot line is still a worthy read and sets up the rest of the series in fine fashion We know going in that these two main characters will grow past their differences and their bickering and a genuine friendship and probably a romance will blossom But I thought all of that was handled very realistically and wasn’t rushed along at all My biggest negative is that while the ending provided a big reveal concerning the very nature of the world in which they live I had seen it coming through most of the bookbut even so I didn’t feel any kind of major letdown The world building is appropriately kept to a minimum but I would have preferred the magic system to be a little less nebulous I’m still not sure how the various aspects of Alissa’s threads and tendrils and rivulets and globes of energy work but then again at the end of book one Alissa doesn’t either Thusthree booksThe cover of the paperback I read is from back in the early 2000's when the book was first published I see that today’s covers are definitely geared toward the YA market I suppose that is appropriate for the book I just read but it works as a traditional epic fantasy as well

Summary First Truth

First TruthOf her father's old maps Travelling together they can reach the Hold before the snow sets in But they don't know that the Hold is nearly empty Something is very wrong and someone believes that Alissa and Strell knows about a book called First Tru. 35 stars I enjoyed First Truth but felt that Bailic was not nearly as sinister as he could have been and I thought he was a bit slow not to have figured out who the keeper was I did like the slow pace that the relationship between Alissa and Strell is developing at though

I'm not uite sure if this deserves three or four stars I would've given this one five stars but Strell got on my nerves with his incessant cheesy romantic lines Who he breathed roughly will sing you to sleep when your rest is troubledClangWho will tease you until you stamp your foot he sobbed his unnoticed tears of frustration freezing on his cheekClangAnd who he whispered fiercely raising Alissa's staff high over his head Who will ever love you than I That made me cringe To others it probably sounded uite romantic or whatever but that just wasn't my cup of tea Thankfully Alissa never heard this impassioned speech If she had I'm pretty certain that she would've been running for the hills Although the development of Alissa and Strell's relationship was entirely predictable the whole concept of magic in this book was novel for me at least Unfortunately the villain was too stock of a character for me to really hate him so I wasn't able to really get into it and thoroughly hate the man along with the protagonists I often judge a book by how invested I am in the characters and here I wasn't feeling much On a positive note I loved how Strell and Alissa were flawed as it made their characters far believable Also I was glad to see that Alissa wasn't the typical I can do it all female lead that's running rampant in the fantasy world even if she did display an extraordinary talent for so untrained a Keeper is that what she really is Anyway to cut my ramblings short I enjoyed reading First Truth and that's all I have to say about it Clearly
