|Review:||I've complained in the past about reading a book that is several books into a series without reading the preceding volumes. In this case, that matters not - one can easily pick up this story and start reading and feel like they've been involved with the characters all along. The pace in this book is outstanding - and what a pace it has to be to fit in so very much in just over 300 pages! I am impressed with the level of detail used - but written in such a way that is easily understood. One complaint is that I needed a bit deeper character development, but I'm sure if I read the other books in this series, I'll learn much much more about the people who seemed real to me after just a few hundred pages. Great read - pick it up!|
