The first sixty or so pages did not measure up to the authors concise normal mode of story telling . The beginning was slightly scattered and seemed to have no internal logic. However, Ryan did not disappoint in the rest of the book. After a bit, Ryan gets it together with a rollicking blast and the rest of the book is absolutely marvelous. His prose is gorgeous without being pretentious. The world he creates is quite unique to his genius. It is a concisely wrought place with provocative hints of both a past and a future. He has populated it with believable and fully developed characters with his own perfect mix of bad guys and heroes, men,women and children and other creatures. The story holds together very tightly and the pace he sets is nothing short of phenomenal without being too stressful. Reality is completely bent with almost believable magic. A quite palatable escape from the normal humdrum currently being proffered in the genre. This is a Must Be Read experience so don't let the beginning put you off. Ryans editors should have done a better job for him with the start.
