    This is another of Steve Perry's exceptional books, albeit a self-published one. I enjoyed this on many levels. Like so many of Mr. Perry's books in the past, the storyline, characters, pacing and of course the writing are all top notch. This book, in particular, really struck a chord with me since it draws on several arenas which are of great interest to me. Being a student of a form of Silat, a style similar to the one which Mr. Perry studies himself, I enjoyed immensely the martial arts action portrayed here. Like Master of Pamor and the Musashi Flex, the martial arts enjoy being in the forefront in this story. The characters are exciting, and although they are involved in the fantastic for most of the action, they are also quite believable. Anyone involved in writing fantasy yarns can tell you, that is not an easy goal to accomplish. The religious overtones are obviously well researched and bring an unusual and unique feel to the tale. All in all another fantastic book that I would highly recommend to any lover of a good story well written. My only gripe is one that I have also observed in some of Mr. Perry's other self-published books and that is the inclusion of several grammatical errors throughout. These, I am sure, come about due to the lack of an editor being used and are rather annoying at times. A few more proof reads would undoubtedly have remedied this. A small blotch on an otherwise exceptional offering!

    Great read!

    Reminded me a lot of "The Man Who Never Missed", at least in the character development and the relationship between Kane and Rinpoche.

    Very interesting plot, and I would definitely like to see this develop into a series!

    It is my first Nookbook, so I am not sure if the different fonts and dint sizes that showed up were intentional...they looked more like an artifact of the ebook than aurhor's intent, i.e. What in print would be a typesetters' error. No big deal, but a bit distracting.
