FIVE stars Best series starter!!!!, May 15, 2012
By ScubaSteve -
This is one of the best books I have read in a long while!
The main character "Caleath" is awesome, a total badass who is often also the slightly reluctant good-guy.
The story takes place in a fantasy world that doesn't over-indulge in complicated names or histories but it's also a sci-fi that you don't have to be a nerd to understand.
But don't think for a second that it's too tame or "young reader". It's full of grimy fighting, power-hungry folks with twisted and dubious motives and a hero who is pushed to the brink of physical endurance and sanity.
Think a tech-savy-futuristic-dude-who-can -fight-like-Spartacus, stranded in a magical world. The result? Put down what you're reading now and prepare to be transported.
