Gavin Gavin said: " This was an interesting fantasy that had a bit of action, intrigue, mystery, and humor. It also had an interesting bunch of characters and a pretty cool fantasy world. The nature of the magic gave this fantasy world a weird steampunk feel!

"I'm getting sucked into the story a bit more now. It looks like we are in for quite an exciting last phase. I hope the Doppel manages to survive. She might be a bit murderous but I still like her!" Feb 28, 2017 05:27AM

"I'm giving this book another go but I'm still struggling with it. It is so frustrating as I loved the first book and enjoyed the second one so I've no idea why I'm just not engaging at all with this third instalment of the series.

I'll give it a final chance to grab my attention today and if it fails I'll just pull the plug permanently and pick a new read!"

"Crossed Wires by Jeff Somers & Stephen Blackmore

This was a decent enough story. I think I liked the feel of Blackmoore's characters and magic a little better but neither have me bursting to rush out to buy the first books in either series as both feel like typical male written UF stuff. I might give Somer's Avery Cates series a go as the premise of that one sounds a lot more exciting.

3.5 stars."

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”

Carlos Castañeda
“A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.”
Carlos Castaneda
