It's not a love story or a buddy adventure. There aren't paragraphs devoted to the texture and aroma of the food. It's fast paced action packed introduction into the life of a Spartan warrior. It's obvious that research went into getting accurate details of the era but the story does not get unneccessarily bogged down. When something is called "Book 1" I wonder if it's going to leave enough intrigue to make me want to come back for subsequent books. But this story moves so fast that it was over before I knew it and I need to know find out the next chapter in Akon's life. Given what's happened in this book, there are sure to be plenty of twists and turns throughout this series.
As certain events unfolded, I was unsure if I agreed with the actions of the title character. For me, that enhanced the experience because I found myself wondering what his motivations were, who should be trusted, would he regret those decisions? But it's not a world of black and white with easy choices. And Akon might not always make the right one. But it's certainly a ride that i intend on seeing through. Bring on the next.
