The first thing to say about this book is that I enjoyed reading it and would look forward to any sequel.
If you like books of this genre, I would reccomend it.
On the slightly negative side, it would benefit immensely from being edited slightly, some of the reasoning and explanations behind the laws and customs etc, are very laboured and for me unnecessary, I found myself skimming forward in some places to get back to the story...
Also ...l some of the spelling is pretty poor, and sometimes incorrect words are used, sometimes words are completely missed out.... (Over enthusiastic spell checker ?).
These slightly negative comments don't detract from it being a good read, but would result in a more polished and even more readable book, IMHO.
