really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, indonesian
Recommended for: Fantasy Lover
Read from December 31, 2009 to January 02, 2010

First Impression: Killer Cover :) What can I say, even when some people say don't judge the book by its cover, but this one certainly draw me in.

And now for the content: as I did help in some of the editing, I am probably one of the very few person who read this book first. As a fantasy lover, the first thing that I love about this book is its unique spin that revolves around the story, culture and history of people in the Mesopotamia in the 24th century B.C. Some of the characters, places and story there, were actually real things and could be found in the actual history of the Mesopotamian (And yes I check this out through google and wiki :D)This really open up my eyes to one of the most amazing civilization of the world past. I don't know much about the history of Mesopotamia, but RD Villam is able to convince me enough with his writing, that he has done enough research and being able to bring the history back to live in his own story. His writing is able to kept me reading non-stop, and bring that world up in front of my eyes.

Also love the twist and spin of the story that kept me guessing till the end. I thought I had it figure out at the middle of the book, but boy was I wrong :)
