Book Review of Gifts

abbykt avatar reviewed on + 113 more book reviews

I thought the book was a little slow but it definately set up a lot for the other two books. Sometimes the first book in a trillogy needs to establish everything. I thought it was interesting how Orrec was willing to sacrifice his sense of sight to keep his family safe from his "gift." I do not really think that it is a gift to be able to undo something. I am interested to see if Gry's theory is correct, that the gifts were once used for peace and have been corrupted by war and violence. There were some very touching parts in the book with Orrec's relationships with his mother and father. It will also be interesting to see how Orrec's feelings will change toward his father since his discover about his gift near the end of the book.
