One night in the city of Hearne, a young thief named Jute is instructed to break into a wizard's house and steal an old wooden box. It sounds like a straightforward job. Climb down the chimney, creep through the house, find the thing and get out fast. Unbeknownst to the boy, however, the box contains the knife that killed the Wind. Overcome with curiosity, Jute opens the box and sets off a chain of events that soon has him on the run from the wizard, his old masters in the Thieves Guild, and their client, who happens to be the Lord of Darkness himself. On his odyssey of escape, Jute is aided by an unlikely assortment of friends, including a guilt-ridden assassin, a reluctant wizard, and a hawk who just might be able to teach him how to fly. But the Darkness will do anything to find Jute, even if it means plunging the whole land into war. The Hawk And His Boy is the first book of The Tormay Trilogy. The trilogy continues with The Shadow At The Gate, and concludes with The Wicked Day.… (mais)

Sometimes incredibly exciting and wonderful, sometimes a bit meh. I think the pacing may need a bit of work.

What's up with all of the character names that sound so similar? I spent most of this book getting names confused. :)

Overall, a fascinating concept with fascinating characters. I'll read the 3rd book eventually. ( )

The more I read Young Adult books, the more I am liking them.
Clean, tight short story, bit less jaded views of good and evil.

I hope the rest of the series lives up to this book. This does suffer from first book syndrome and leaves you with a cliffhanger right at the end. Good thing we don't have to wait for the next book. ( )

Overall this was a good story and a decent read. The author was able to create a very rich world without going into overly-lengthy details. The book focuses on several different characters, each with his own story line, which keeps it interesting. The writing is well done with very minimal errors and flows nicely.

However, while this was an enjoyable read, the main plot unfolds slowly while several subplots are explored and the characters are not very deeply developed.

I do plan to read the rest of the trilogy and look forward to seeing how all of the characters collide. ( )

I struggled with the rating on this book. And I struggle with the review. I read this book because it was free and I needed a book to read. That being said, I finished the book. Which is a big step considering it was free. I had nothing invested and nothing to lose.

As to technicalities: I did not find any glaring errors while reading - no typoes, wrong words or other editorial issues. Which isn't to say they are not there, but, rather, they were not so overwhelming or obvious as to invade the story to me. (But, then, I do not notice these things unless they ARE glaring.)

The writing, itself, was ok. Just ok to me. The author follows several characters and rarely sticks with one character long enough for me to get into a comfort zone and feel attached. Reading, to me, is about spending time with characters I love and watching their relationships with others. Which leads me to the most blatant problem with this book. There is no "the hawk and his boy." The title of this book led me to the conclusion that it was a story of a hawk and a boy. While there is definitely a hawk and a boy, the book delves into this relationship on a very minute level. I assume that the sequels do so more in depth, but I have not decided whether I care enough to invest either the time or the money into exploring this relationship.

I will admit that my rating for this novel definitely falls into the "expectation" scale. I may well have "expected" more from this novel than it delivered. And, that may be MY fault and not the author's. ( )
