I really like the cover on this one, which is what initially attracted me to this book. I feel the writing is solid with well done world building and vivid descriptions. The characters have a nice feel for them with appropriate strengths for the more head smart characters. The plot has a bit of a rough start but then evens out and actually keeps a good pace. Overall this is a good entertaining read with an author showing future potential. I received an evaluation copy in exchange for my honest opinion, which may not mirror your own.
