Shan is one of my favorite authors, so I was thrilled when this book popped onto shelves. If you're looking for Shan's trademark gore, it's here, just not heavily. This novel is more of a adventure/survival as opposed to a horror. Jebel is living in the shadow of his rock-star-status dad, the local exicutioner. The problem is that he's puny, and there are more than enough willing and able men for the job. He devises a plan to go on a quest to seek invincablilty from his people's most powerful god. He takes a slave with him as the required sacrifice, but along the way, both personal expiriance and his companion's etearnal good mood start to change Jebel. From this point on, he continues to ingnore the changes, but his resolve is weakining. The twist at the end is equal parts suprising and delightful. A great read.
