3.5 stars - rounding upThe Grimoire: Lichgates is basically your own personal lichgates. It takes you to the wonderful but intense world or Ourea, which is riddled with secrets, betrayals and prejudices. It was a great journey, but my problem with it was that it centered too much on the journey part, I would have liked to see more action, faster pace. The characters were great, loved all of them. Kara gets thrown into Ourea without a clue of what to expect but she takes up the challenge to be the Vagabond and she kicks ass at it. Great fantasy, can't wait to find out what happens next to Kara and Braeden.
