I love a good tale of magic so I didn't think I'd like this as it sounded alot like Science. However, it mixed Science, Magic and Mythology. It is a brilliant story that does draw you in. I started it on Friday night, late so I couldn't finish it but I stayed in bed on Saturday morning reading it. I could not put it down. It pulls you in, and you cannot leave. He has done alot of research and put it into his book. His different races are amazing, he combines his imagination into mythology using Gods of old.
