I was able to read this as a beta reader, and was delighted to have the opportunity to read the whole book after reading a sample. I am very happy to see it has finally been released to the public.

It was a good story. I really appreciated the interweaving of the similarities of the various religions touched on so that it wasn't overshadowed too much by one or the other. While reading I was not sure if it was meant for "Elvis Datan" or Zu to be such a caricature at times of himself or not. It was very in keeping with Ichtomi and how he tends to bring about his own downfall in stories though. I do love a comedic villian.

Elvis Datan needs anger management classes, badly. I'd feel sorry for the instructor though giving them.

There were times it was a little hard for me to connect to the story. I'm not sure if it was because of pacing since it read more like a paranormal thriller to me, or my own exhaustion at the time of the reading. Angela was also a character that I was intrigued by. It would definitely be interesting to read a story set after or before so see what other Angelic relations are encountered by the whole family line.

I also was very glad that it was a miner that was the father of the main character, and to see a deaf person as a main character. Those are not tales that I find often.

It is a good read when feeling down but in the strange mindset of needing something both heavy but light.
