Wow! is all can say after reading Victory. Jack London once said that he was glad to be alive, if only for the reason of having read this book. Well, actually the story IS that good--provided one has the imagination for it. The story has wonderfully interesting characters and an equally captivating plot.

Thorns soul floated out of his mind and body. As his body grew cold, his body caved in. For he was just a peice of magic. Fir he had failed his pourpose, so the power must go back to what it came from. The shadow empire.

He couldn't purr or hum, so he just lay there silent and awkward.

&#10023 I hate you for what you did to me, Thorn. I allowed Firnen to mate with me, because of you. You abandoned me... &#10023 The Eldunari's voice hissed.
