Review by: SM Johnson on April 10, 2013 :
There is no sex (nor torture) in these pages, but the writing is smooth and easy to read, the characters are fairly well-drawn, and it sets up a nice story world for future installments.

Review by: C S McClellan on Aug. 15, 2010 :
Elsdon Taylor, condemned to be executed for the murder of his sister, has been committed to the Eternal Dungeon for Searching and Breaking. The question isn’t about his guilt, but about whether there’s any reason why he shouldn’t suffer the ultimate penalty. Expecting to be tortured, he meets Layle Smith, the High Seeker, whose reputation is that of a fearsome torturer. He isn’t what Elsdon expected, and it turns out that Elsdon is also not what Layle Smith expected.

Thus begins a story in which a tormented young man is pitted against a man capable of extracting the darkest secrets from his prisoners.

The Breaking is the first part of Rebirth, part of the Eternal Dungeon series. The series explores the range of human emotions, from love to madness, all within the confines of a dungeon shut away below the “lighted world.”
