Engler does two things well: high emotion and awesome displays of power. Both these things are available in plenty. Characters with godlike abilities threaten each other with terrible fates. In one battle scene, a man bats rockets out of the air with his bare hands. The protagonists soar through emotional highs and sink to harrowing lows, sometimes in the span of a few pages.
There’s also a lot of dialogue. If you love talking, this book is for you. The early half in particular is filled with meetings, clandestine consultations, people facing each other down. It makes the book move at a breezy pace, although at times I felt I could have used a bit more narrative. You can tell Engler loves these characters and enjoys having them interact with each other.
My only real criticism is the first chapter, which is rough compared to the rest. The opening chapter, heavy on bantering characters and slightly horny antics, read a bit like a fanfic for a property I wasn’t familiar with. The second chapter introduces the main conflict and neatly establishes the antagonists. From there, the pacing rarely lets up, and the end result was an enjoyable adventure in a colorful world.
