Anyway, I enjoyed the story. (I'll confess to having downloaded the first two chapters from the author's website.) Couple of minor points, and I'll not belabor 'em. There are a number of instances where I think better words could have been used. For example, these are both in chapter one: a nurse is "...'lessoning' a young male nurse..."; this is a bit awkward. "Instructing" might work better. A bit later on, a coach is quoted as saying to Bethany "...you are well." Um, er... Bethany is certainly not well; she's recovering, or convalescent. Minor points, true, but there are many instances of this sort of awkwardness.
There also seems to be a bit of roughness in the way the story reads. There aren't many places where this occurs, but each is a bit of a stumbling block: it breaks the reader out of the story. Perhaps the author could employ one of the time-tested ways to smoothing out his prose? Read it aloud, or even better yet, have it read aloud to him. The little bobbles -- and I'd bet all the disruptive words -- might well get smoothed away.
Will I buy more of Laer Carroll's books? You bet I will! I'm saving my pennies so as to get hold of the Shapechanger's Progress (et.al.) saga!
No, they aren't great literature, and there's some typos, but they are fun and easy to get into. One of my favorite authors and I plan to re-read them all in a couple of years.
