A prequel to the first three books Connolly wrote about the Twenty Palaces society, this story tells Ray Lilly's back story. It stands in it's own right as a story and introduces readers to the two main characters (Annalise and Ray). The story takes place immediately following Ray's release from prison and return to Seattle. He is immediately confronted by his best friend's miraculous 'cure' from the gunshot wound and resulting paralysis. His desire to 'make it up' to his former best friend and the resulting consequences make up this story.

This is one of the best stories I've read, not knowing what the story is about, not having any recommendations beforehand, not knowing if I would like it. And I do like it. Definitely urban fantasy. This had enough mystery and uncertainty to keep the story interesting and enough action and suspense to keep things moving. Plenty of surprises. I like the ending. I've read enough of Child of Fire to sync the details from Ray's past. And I'm glad I read Twenty Palaces first. Overall, it doesn't matter, just a personal preference.

Harry Connolly writes smart, suspenseful, character-driven action stories about a guy who has to save the world. This is the first book, which takes us back to see how Ray got swept up into the world of the Twenty Palaces. Once again he has to start putting things together from small hints, sometimes guessing wrong, but always moving quickly. I highly recommend all of this series. Although this first book isn't quite as tightly plotted as his later works (Connolly keeps getting better, so reading his first book last means stepping back a little), it still provides a good read while showing how Ray moved into his current line of work.

This prequel is great, we learn a lot more about the society and Ray Lily. Ray is very compelling and he is why I love this series. Buy them all, they are well worth it.
