Great debut book, well worth a read

Great read, i had a bit of trouble in the transition between part 1 and 2 in the changeover between Hrot and Jasmine, but soon got into the transition. For a a debut novel ill definatly be checking out more of this authors work.

For a first book, this novel is really well crafted. I enjoyed the pacing of the novel and was immediately drawn in by the prologue; the second half was brilliant. The characters were well developed. In fact, Hrot was a bit of a surprise as at first, he didn't have the makings of a hero. Throughout a majority of the novel he was really quite pathetic, despite his intellectual curiosity. His clumsiness was astounding, and it was a wonder he didn't kill himself the first few chapters of the book. ...more

*FULL DISCLOSURE* I did NOT finish this book. I made it to chapter 6 before I started to fall asleep. It's no where near bed time, so I'm done with this. Good luck to you.

This is a very rich story that journeys not only across Europe, but across time as well. It is full of twists and turns, taking you to places you never expected. I was up at all hours of the night reading to find out what happens next. It is so masterfully written that I felt as if I was taking the journey along with Hrot. There is so much depth to this story that there could easily be a sequel. Fans of Christopher Marlowe will very much enjoy this author.

I have been writing fiction ever since I learned my letters, and my first attempt was a short story about a talking dog. After a brief flirtation with sci-fi and adventure, I discovered the world of fantasy and supernatural fiction—and there was no turning back.
Apart from several short stories, I’ve written three novels and a trilogy. My debut, Deception of the Damned, is available on Amazon. The
