I give this book 4/5 stars. I say give it a read.
It's no literary masterpiece, but it is well-written and easy to read.
The characters stay consistent with only some basic growth as they advance along, but they are likable and felt real to me. They are all capable, but not treated as supermen whenever it's convenient.
No mind-blowing contrivances to appear deep or intellectual. The book does take itself seriously tho and doesn't talk down either.
I set aside time each day to read one chapter (except the last three chapters I read together). Each chapter makes a nice episode with equal amounts of action and information download. Lots of nice cliffhangers too that had me looking forward to the next day. I didn't bog down once in the whole month. That's as good as it gets for me! Sign me up for the next two entries in the series!
No Cursing, No Sex, No Graphic Violence but lots of fighting and battles where combatants are wounded or die. Some blood but no guts.
