I rarely if ever feel the need to leave a review - but this was probably the best visualised new world I have read in a very long time. The characters were well drawn, and engaging. The story line felt realistic - and it was concise. There did not feel to me anyway as though there was any of the material that could and should have omitted. In short, I loved it. And I have broken the habits of a lifetime to order the next two books despite the fact that I think the prices for a kindle book are excessive!
