The world building done here is completely immersive, with only a few modern references which temporarily break the mood set by the author. For the most part you can imagine Bogg and Simon trekking through the as yet untamed US, searching for vengeance. Fantasy and adventure abound.
This book was an absolute joy to read from the first sentence to the last! It had everything going for it: wonderful writing style, excellent editing (and I consider that to be VERY important!), fantastic imagery so that you could almost experience what was happening right along with the characters, extremely realistic characters, even the made-up creatures were described so well that they were definitely believable (and scary as hell!!!), very realistic dialogues which seemed like actual conversations and not like you're reading a book, really awful villains but who still seemed to be real people, and last, but certainly not least, the truly marvelous character of Bogg whose developing relationship with his great-nephew, Simon is, of course, the heart behind the wonderful sword-and-sorcery adventure story.
I wouldn't limit this book to a specific genre because when something is good, it simply crosses boundaries, and this book is more than good; it is grea!! I definitely recommend it to people of all ages (actually 12 and up is probably more realistic since I'm over 60) and both genders and I suggest that if you want to enjoy a superior reading experience, that you download this book ASAP!! Happy Reading! ❤️

The book engaged me straight away. Simon and Bogg are well crafted characters and your relationship with them grows steadily.
I liked the world that SW has created and his population of strange animals and beings leave so much room for further adventures with Simon and Bogg.
I particularly like the Vivets. On the face of simple forest creatures but so much lies beneath.
I hope that you do read this book, its a great story that's is well written and well paced and will hold onto you.
and five gets you ten you buy the sequel!
