I have found another author to add to my favorites list! This book is a wonderful, gritty, well-written fantasy. I really enjoyed the fast-paced story and the 3 main characters Gil, Archeth, and Egar were very likeable and I found myself equally enjoying each of their stories and very much enjoyed seeing how they tied together. The sex scenes that were in the book were detailed but there was certainly nothing gross or over-done, although I would definitely call it an "adult" read.
Overall, a great book and I look forward to continuing this series.
