I love this story! Michael J. Sullivan is now on my favorite author list. This is the first book I have read by this author and I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised by how well written and imaginative it is. It caught me from the start and it was difficult to put down! There was no skipping ahead to gloss over boring long descriptive paragraphs (which I have a tendency to do when the reading is laborious)! It is a very well written, fast paced read.
Hadrian and Royce are funny, believable characters that I am now totally attached to and I can't wait to continue reading the series to follow along with them. Alric, Arista, Thrace, Esrahaddon, Magnus and Myron...loved each and every one of them!
