"Well written and captivating, I experienced a wide range of emotions and felt at times like I was the one being deceived and lied to. I was sucked into the story faster than I thought possible and it took all I had to put the book down to get some sleep. " ~Nykita - Goodreads
"Thrilling, intense and engrossing. The plot is fantastic. I couldn't put this book down. It's a brilliant piece of storytelling. The characters all have their own very distinct voices and personalities. Even the bad guys are totally awesome!" ~Abby - Goodreads
From the Author
From a fairly simple narrative it grew into a rather complex epic tale, set in a kind of medieval world, but, and this is important, not our Middle Ages. There are literally dozens of characters. It takes some effort, especially in the beginning, but I hope you will find it worth your while. Actually I am not so much just trying to tell a story as to create a series of books you can live in.
I can only hope some readers will like to visit this world and its many, many inhabitants occasionally.
