Back Cover Blurb:
Wilson is a master of world creation. Every aspect is brought forward in a big way and as part of the story that the characters are living. He writes scenes so vivid that they make you catch your breath and pray for the characters. I love the way that the history of this world really comes into play in this one as new alliances become paramount. The feeling of inevitability that runs throughout the novel gave me chills.
The fantastically vibrant cast of characters brings this all together in such an unforgettable manner. i love the myriad of ways that they are all developed and how returning favorites stand side by side with interesting newcomers. The diverging paths that the characters begin to walk reallly adds to the intensity of the story. Brooklyn really shines here as his personality and origins really come out in every action and reaction.
This novel is fast paced, exciting, and awe inspiring. I couldn't put it down for a second nor would I hesitate to recommend this to others (both this novel and the series as a whole).
