I have wanted to read Alex Bledsoe's books, so when I found it a Kobo for four dollar, I snapped it up. And, I am glad I did. The book felt like an Urban Fantasy set in an other world. That's a refreshing change from the more Traditional Fantasy novels. The world was intresting, but since the story included a lot of travels, I wished they had thought of including a map. The plot shifted between now and thirteen years ago. The events that happened 13 years before gave a background to what happens now. The plot was fastmoving, and kept me on the edge. The characters felt like human beings, with their flaws.
