A one-word review of this book? Terrific.

You want more than one word? Okay. This book, the first of the Ciriath Cycle by John M. Dow, is a masterful blend of paranormal, epic historical, supernatural, romance, spiced with a dash of horror. Mr. Dow is a skillful wielder of metaphor and his imagery is always precise, never ham-handed or overdone. The characters in this book are full-fleshed and well-drawn, three-dimensional and alive.

I never like to give much in the way of synopsis because I get annoyed when I read reviews that give away the store. But I will say a little. In this book, there are two forces at work, the Protectorate and the Opposition, with an uneasy Truce between the two. James, one of the First--an Immortal being who can create and destroy worlds--and his companion of three millennia, who now goes by the name of Emily, must confront James' unaccountable attraction to a young woman, Dawn. How they finally deal with the seemingly unsolvable problem leads to a stunning conclusion and a stirring lead-in for the second book.

Frankly, I squealed, "No!" out loud at the moment when one character makes a supreme sacrifice for the sake of another. It was perfectly logical and in character. And it broke my heart. I loved it.

I recommend this book very highly, as well as "From Within," also by John Dow. He is an excellent writer and his books are simply terrific.

This book was given to me as a review copy.

The author does a fantastic getting you to be able to relate to his characters and visualize the scenes in your mind's eye, and the story was engaging from the moment I started reading. There was never a dull moment. I bought this book after having read his other book, From Within, because that one was good as well. Will be looking forward to purchasing more books from this author.

Wonderfully written. Dow is my kind of writer. I can't wait for next the book in the series. I was looking for a great read when I came across From Within. I really enjoyed it so I read Careless Talk. I couldn't have been more surprise and enthralled. Characters come colorfully to life. James is so confused but strong. Emily is funny and remember-able. Dawn is likable to the point I wish I could meet her. I could go on... Just read this book.

Introduces a bit of what makes this a good horror and not just a bloodfest.
