The action drew me in right away, but there is much more here than that. The characters are very well written and well rounded and there is an overall attention to detail that draws the reader into the world. Plus, the story has very interesting surprises. This is a truly well done book, and I anxiously await the sequel.

Needs Major Editing

The author got hung up on minute details of martial arts. Did nothing for the story line. Just bogged the whole tale down. The martial arts practice and fight scenes were just plain boring. Cutting about 2/3 of fight descriptions would greatly improve this book.

    I had a really hard time getting into this. The concept is good, and I enjoyed the story line, but the action was WAY too much. I agree -- it bogged the story down a LOT. You could cut out more than half the book and lose nothing of the story line. And the switching between perspectives during fight scenes was really, really confusing. I'll probably have to read any sequels just because I've gotten into the story and like some of the characters, but I probably wouldn't read anything else by this author. I also agree that major editing is needed -- I found numerous typos and grammatical errors. Mixed feelings on this book.

    Sttarts off pretty good

    But then goes downhill. Often too lenghty discriptions intermingled with other all too brief scenes.

    The last half of the book goes nowhere.
