Like Tegon's other books, there is a wonderful balance of dialog, action and introspection. His characters go from frying pan to fire to blast furnace and manage to survive all odds. There is some serious drama in this book and yet there is plenty to laugh about. This is the thing I like so much about all of Tegon's books, he makes me laugh.
The descriptions of scenery and action are wonderful and thrilling. Tegon has successfully created a mood darker than previous books and Tucker's tortured soul is expressed quite well.
I am happy to report that the rumor of more books in this series is going to be true.
Except for the small handful of spelling errors the score of 4.9 stars would have been higher.
