Keeps getting better and better
on 14 May 2011
This is the second book I have read by this author, and I have to say, he keeps getting better and better.
He is a gifted storyteller who serves up enough twists and turns to hold the interest and I found myself wanting to keep on turning the next page. Even though this is a substantial novel, I completed the last 50% of the book in one sitting. I really didn't want to put it down, it was that good!
If I had any complaint, it would be the odd typo here and there, but don't let that put you off a terrific story with a twist that I really didn't see coming.
If like me you enjoy a bit of escapism and enjoy reading tales of heroes and villains, honour and treachery, civil war and a quest for peace, with wholly believable characters and settings, then this is probably a book for you.
I will be ordering the other two books by Mr Turney very soon. Very well done!
