An excellent introduction,
This review is from: A God-Blasted Land: The Bastard Cadre #1 (Kindle Edition)This is a short but excellent first novel and a great introduction to a new world.
The book starts off at a slower pace, taking care to introduce these new characters and world to the reader. Around the middle, the action heats up and I found that I could not put it down till the end. The book is quite short, but a worthy start to a promising series.
I especially liked the fact that the author kept the story in this first installment limited to one general geographic area and a small number of (doubtlessly important) characters. By the end of the book, I found that I had a good understanding of where the protagonist came from, what he was becoming and the gradual change in his character by the end of the first book.
If you are interested in checking out a good, short science fiction novel, this is definitely worth the time spent.
