Publisher's Summary

Garran Holt is a troubled young man. Unable to tolerate his self-destructive ways, his mother sells him into indentured servitude as part of work crew building the King Remiel’s new trade road. When mercenaries sent to disrupt the road’s construction attacks his work camp, Garran discovers an inner power capable of turning him into a warrior of unparalleled ability. Recognizing Garran as being one of the transcended (a fighter able to slip into the swifter currents of time), he is trained as an agent, one of the kingdom’s elite spies. Crude, abrasive, and deeply committed to destroying himself with drugs, alcohol, and debauchery, Garran might be the kingdom’s only hope against falling to The Guild, the powerful trade cartel bent on becoming the true and undisputed power in the land.

Such a lovable guy!

Deskins pens a pretty messed up story with the Miscreant, but I do not mean this in a bad way. He is very unapologetic for what he writes, and the way his character behaves. It is very refreshing to see a REAL sociopath as a main character. I had read the Dexter novels, but they still tried to pawn off the badness in the man to his Dark Passenger, and he had an inner struggle that made him sympathetic. Not here. The book is funny, and in no way does it try to improve the main character. He is a letch that is interested in self fulfillment and utter debauchery, and he makes no qualms about behaving as he pleases.

This wouldn't be so bad, but Garren is Transcended, which means he has powers few others have, and he is forced to fight for his homeland in spite of his wishes. Too bad, so sad they are depending on such and A hole to be their savior. This book is not for everyone. There will be some whiney sniffling cry babies who cannot stand he things that happens, and they need to stay away from this book. Away as in restraining order distance.

But, if you love craziness, action, and all kinds of debauchery then this is, without a doubt, the book for you. Arquin, btw, does a great job narrating. He is quite skilled, and carries the story along without a hiccup. I see a lengthy career for him in this industry.

Get this book, and be prepared to go on one wild ride. Just don't expect any apologies.
