This prologue for J.D. Franx's Darkness Within series is nothing short of terrific! From the opening scene with the Dead Sister Witches till the stunning conclusion, I was transfixed by the mesmerizing and multi-layered world that was opening up before my eyes. In contrast with my experience with many other fantasy novels, transport into this fantastic world seemed effortless, despite its complexity. The characters literally leap off the page and, in a very short time, I found myself caring about them and wanting to know what would happen next! Yes, this little appetizer left me hungry for more and I will await with great anticipation the next installment in what I believe will be a truly epic series. Most highly recommended.
