I read avidly from a wide range of authors. It is very rare that when I an author's work for the first time that it offers something new and compelling. Rarer still that they make it into my list of all-time favourite authors, who I actively seek out their other books and eagerly await their next release. Jon Creffield is such an author.
The authors style of writing sets the scene quickly and immerses you in the world he has so masterfully crafted, you would believe that you are reading the fifth or sixth in the series. The pace fast fluid and captivating.
The author does not pull any punches and has an uncanny knack of making the reader feel every cut, shy from every shadow and bathe in every victory!
All the characters have the depth and realism other authors reserve for their main characters of their books.
Having read the book (twice already!!) the ending is great, my only regret is that the book ended and I am desperate for the next instalment!
If you are looking to add another author to those who are your "must reads!", read this book and be prepared to be hooked. It is exceptional!
