Excited for more August 11, 2013
I came across this book while it was free to download as I don't typically buy books from unknown authors, but after having read it I would have gladly paid normal bookstore prices, I enjoyed it that much (I also don't generally write reviews, but I wanted to spread the word so others don't skip past this great story, dismissing a novice author like I might have). I am in agreement with some of the other reviewers that the battle scenes are where this author's style really shines. They keep you wondering who will come out on top, who will survive, and what new abilities will be discovered by the different players. There are also some very interesting dynamics between the various "Talent" sets that I won't spoil here, but let's just say that some of the talents are used in very creative ways.
Aside from the fight scenes there is plenty else to enjoy in this book, from political intrigue to blossoming relationships as Jaden follows his path from a quiet schoolboy to powerful warrior hellbent on bringing down the nefarious Archduke Goldwater. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in SciFi/Fantasy, especially ones dealing with post-apocalyptic power struggles. I can't wait to read more from author Brian Terenna
