Excellent story, loved it even. Strong world building and lots of grey characters that feel real. Except the main character. He almost ruined it for me. He has the problem that arises, at least to me and that occurs a lot in recently written books by many authors, and it is that he's afraid or remorseful of taking life, inexplicably so. I understand the need to be human and good... But there was a scene, and spoiler's, where he took bullets from some gang members instead of shooting back because he didn't want to see death... that in itself I can understand. But his wife was with him and she nearly died. That I don't. You protect those you care about, not die for a belief that will injure others. Happens again and again through the story. Stupid mistakes he makes that get others hurt.. and all he can complain about is how much this place sucks and how he can't be a good guy. And then he feels bad because others got hurt. What!! The author probably had his reasons... it was too weird for me. Cannot stand cowardly or saintly main characters... the reader has to be off like mind to enjoy it. And that's not me. It was hard for me to connect with him, couldn't really feel sorry for him at all, which was opposite of what was intended. But other than that.. loved the book. Probably will buy book #2.

This being the first fantasy audio book I have listen to my option is probably not the greatest but I know comparing this to thing such as Lord of the ring and Harry Potter its a or-some roller coaster of excitement mystery and emotional twists. With out putting spoilers in I can say all the characters are written to make you feel empathy hatred and all kinds of emotions towards each and everyone. I truly enjoyed this book and hope the next one will come soon it defiantly made my day of working a lot faster and more enjoyable experience. Sorry yes my writing is terrible sorry to put you through it.

At times had trouble turning the light off and getting some sleep.....story a mix of creatures and characters. Which in themselves had multiple lead characters. Ends with you needing to know more........
