The only reason I am not giving this book five stars is because the opening is a bit muddy. The MC is dreaming/experiencing the torture of a friend by another person whose sadistic glee is clearly visible on his face in the mirror. I didn't know whose head I was in, and even on a second, slower read of the book, still found this confusing.

Many people would give up at that point and not read on. *Don't.* While there *are* multiple POV's, once past the first chapter, chapter-and-a-half or so, after that the viewpoints are easy to identify and the storytelling is compelling. The characters are well drawn, for the most part (the one villain needs a little love/redeeming qualities, IMO), the action is exciting, and the moral dilemmas are captivating. I loved this book and am bumping the sequel to the top of my TBR list.
