Wess intends to annihilate the Brissack, and a fool named Malcolm must die. The Draca and a mysterious ally are willing to help Wess try!
My Review: This was a book I’ve had on my TBR (To Be Read) list for a while, and I’m happy I finally got to it. Not to mince words, but it was worth the wait.
First off, it’s fair to point out that the author’s writing technique is different than anything else I’ve read. The story is literally told to us by the characters as they fight among themselves over certain points and who gets to tell what. I really enjoy reading books with a different take. To me, it’s a good thing to see authors try something new, especially when it works out. It took me back to my childhood when we’d tell one another stories or listened to others at events.
The story flowed really well and kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. I have to admit, I was also interested to see what the storytellers would accuse the others of. The characters were an interesting group. They kept it fresh while telling their story or interacting with one another.
I definitely look forward to reading the rest of the series and other works by the author.
