This is the story of Tomis and Oath, two investigators wandering the Post-Rebellion world of Opheria together, seeking work.
Tomis is altogether human, with a past he prefers not to talk about, and very human reactions to things. Oath is a Goleman, a glorified Golem, and essentially an intelligent machine, haunted by memories of his previous existence as a Golem, and far too innocent and trusting. The concept of Goleman is a surprising splash of originality in an otherwise uninspired fantasy tale, and seems to be the creation of the author. But the notion of Oath being a sentient machine is muddied by his needing to consume food and beverages as a biological organism would do, and it does seem to be a physical need rather than mere convention or a desire to "fit in".
There are also several plot points in common with this author's previous work, but without the interesting embellishments of language and culture which helped to make the previous work interesting.
That said, this is far and away the best-written work by this author that I have read. It was smoothly written, without excessive explanations or expositions, and came to a reasonable conclusion.
As a whole, the story was disappointingly formulaic and predictable, and ultimately there was more style than substance.
If you enjoy reading this book, I highly suggest reading "Steel, Magick and Faith - Book 1 of the Remus Rothwyn Chronicles" also by T. P. Grish! I have read it and I loved that book as much as I did this one! :)
