Seventeen year old Jack Kulinski is a top MMA fighter but he has a secret, he is afraid to fight. Then one night his friend Denny disappears. Jack was supposed to be responsible for Denny and goes on the hunt for him. This leads him to Tenochtan, a world with a Fire God as a ruler. It seems the god’s priest and priestess have been watching Jack for a while and have plans for him. I have to say that I was completely immersed in this dark world that Jack and Denny find themselves in. I liked Jack as the hero. He has problems, he is afraid of fighting, and has father issues. But he steps up and does what needs to be done. It doesn’t help that Denny seems to find trouble for both of them at every turn. This is a fantastic story that sucked me in, had me reading until late, and sad at the end because I had to leave this dark world. I can’t wait to find out what Stephen is going to have planned for Jack in the next book. If you like good fantasy stories you need to check out this book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
