Like how do you like the story?
What do you think will happen next?
What do you put into a toaster?

The story itself moved greatly, never too slow, or too fast. The plot was very intriguing. To begin with, Ethelred looks like the typical bad guy, a sorcerer with a force of Skeletons at his command. But as the story went on, we slowly realised who the real villains were, the traitor to the Council, and one of Ikros's own Knights. That part was amazing.
My main complaint was that there wasn't really enough emotion. Garalt and Alyia's love was never really explored much, though I admit this isn't important really.
Perhaps the death of a good guy might have helped the story. It turned out that Kullvox wasn't killed by the dragon, but merely pulled the old "He's dead! No, wait, he's not!" trick. I almost cheered when Tundrock was slain, but then it turned out that he was evil all along. I know Ulmerad died, but that was of his own choice, once the evil had gone, and he wanted to go fighting, so I never really felt any emotion to him.
But overall, these nitpicks are far overpowered by the good points. It was a great read!
