Amazon's synopsis tells as much as you really get in this book, as sadly the plot did not really move through to a conclusion. This book appears to be self published, but it does not suffer from poor writing or other common problems of self published works. Instead, here is a well written opening to what promises to be an engaging tale. Sadly it does not live up to the early promise, as there are no plot conclusions here, and one must search out the sequels to conclude one story.
It is not stunningly original either. However, had the story panned out it would definitely have been worth four stars. Nevertheless I think this trilogy ought to have been edited down to a single volume, and the later sloweness and structural problems are such I have to give it just 3.
