I picked this one up at the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo, I always like to support local and upcoming authors if I can and this one sounded right up my alley. I really enjoyed the premise and fast-paced story. It certainly had me flipping pages quickly to see what was going to happen next. The main character was interesting, despite not really knowing a lot about him - I assume we'll learn more in future books. I got a good sense of the world, despite it really being very vague on the details, which is a good thing.
A few things that bothered me: one was the over use of made up swear words. This might be a personal thing, but I always find made up swear words pull me out of the story and in this particular book it was used A LOT. Over used in my opinion and it kind of threw me every time I came across it. Also, although I know this is meant for a younger audience and was meant more as a 'serial' type story, I could have used a bit more descriptions. Again this might be a personal gripe, as I am used to 500 - 1000+ page fantasy tombs that sometimes go overboard in the description department. This didn't require that level by any means, but sometimes could have used a bit more. Lastly there were a few spots I felt lost in the story. Where is suddenly changed and I thought I'd missed something. The transition between scenes in a few places weren't very smooth.
Overall however, I enjoyed it and thought it was a decent read and am still interested to see where the story goes from here. I'd definitely be up for reading future volumes of the series.
