Review by: Grant McHerron on Jan. 29, 2012 :
Definitely a good read & worth checking out with plenty of developments & twists across multiple story lines on separate continents. Some of the character developments & plot progressions were "classic" and somewhat expected but certainly not "wooden" by any means. This is perhaps more a reflection on the quantity of works in this genre that I've read than the story itself. The author's personal religion can be easily determined from references in the story to two major entities and their impact on some of the main characters. Meanwhile, the big "twist" at the end was suspected by about two thirds & the confirmation in the final paragraph added to the enjoyment of the book.

In short, I enjoyed reading it and recommend it to those who enjoy reading a good epic as it develops. I'm certainly looking forward to the second part in the series.
