Konowa Swift Dragon, former commander of the Empire's elite Iron Elves, is looked upon as anything but ordinary. He's murdered a Viceroy, been court-martialed, seen his beloved regiment disbanded, and finally been banished in disgrace to the one place he despises the most -- the forest. Now, all he wants is to be left alone with his misery...but for Konowa, nothing is ever that simple. The mysterious and alluring Visyna Tekoy, the highborn daughter of an elfkynan governor, seeks him out in the dangerous wild with a royal decree that he resume his commission as an officer in Her Majesty's Imperial Army, effective immediately. His assignment: reach the Red Star (a star heralding the return of a magic long vanished from the Earth) before the dreaded Shadow Monarch, a legendary elf-witch.--From publisher description.

I got halfway through, and realized that I could not recall what had happened previously in the book. It was that boring. Felt like it was mostly page after page of the author describing nothing. I generally don't leave things unfinished, but this book I had no problem returning half read.

Really 3.5. I liked it well enough to go on to the next 2 books in this series, but tho enjoyable I can't say it's memorable.

Great - This seemingly civil war inspired fantasy novel surprised me. I've long been a fan of classic fantasy fiction (i.e. medieval fantasy fiction). The characters feel real and the story is gripping. Totally enjoyable for any fantasy lover.
