I’m writing this review because I like this book. I believe I’m qualified to write a review because I’ve read a lot. In my 65 plus years I’ve easily read more than 4,000 books and a large part of them, perhaps as many as 1,000, have been in the Science Fiction genre.

This book was simply outstanding! Paul Guthrie writes superbly blending magic, politics, and power into a phenomenal story sure to resonate with 21st century challenges. Excellent choice. I look forward to the sequel...

What can I say? Carlos Cortes used the word "superb"...nice word.

I was highly disappointed with this book given it had so many high reviews. Similar in tone to Night Watch or Midnight riot, but not nearly as entertaining or well-written.
