Brookins has a flair for taking readers into the thick of things. The old deceptions, bad blood, and fresh wounds of "Old Silver" make for an outstanding romp of an adventure. The unique story blends well with the dark intrigue and lets the reader experience the best of both. Who doesn't wonder at the thought of lost treasure and dream of one day finding it? Exceptional characters pull you along through the story, right to the very end!
