Amy Lane, yet again you have produced a great read!
Think film 'League of Extraordinary Gentleman - Sean Connery' mashed with a Batman film of your choice. By day, Dorjan (Dori) is a mild-mannered but deliberately dim-witted politician (to deflect unwelcome attention). By night he becomes Nyx, the people's hero. Noble, brave, selfless and self-deprecating, he is SO much more that his demeanour suggests. Vigilante does not do him justice. In the world that this book is set, he has had to become a dark, shadowy figure to help those that would otherwise have no help. So much has gone wrong for him and his best friend Ari that he feels a desperate need to right wrongs, mainly dealt to him by Alum Septra, the evil man that has blackmailed and killed his way into the highest position of power. Yes, the story is very familiar, but given a really great twist by the setting. You know that a sidekick (and potential life partner) will come into the story, you know that a great many things will go wrong before they start to go right and you will be absolutely over-the-moon that the 'baddies' will get their comeuppance. As with most Amy Lane stories, you also know that there will be a lot of love, some loss, but hopefully a happy ending.
This book had all of that and more, I really enjoyed it.
