It isn't the longest book out there, nevertheless took me a week to read at an hour or two each, but honestly it seems reasonable.
Overall I am looking forward to the other two books to be released.
As a fantasy novel, expect a mix of traditional fare and some twists. The protagonist, Aren Bennis, is a soldier for the evil empire. In the course of his duties, he discovers a crypt dedicated to a mythical group and stumbles across the titular weapon. From there, however, the fight changes from the battlefield of Midras to one of Aren's own conscience. The sins of his past continue to hound him, but he can perhaps see another path.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy stories. Its a quick read, and it will leave you wanting more.
