This book pulls together all three novels of the Demon Hunter series in one volume producing a terrific read that is thoroughly engrossing from start to finish. We start with a young Costa Calabrese as he discovers he is more than his slave roots suggest and finds himself following in the footsteps of his father. The story continues with Costa training at Ravenwood, learning the skills and discovering the knowledge he needs to continue on his quest, making one or two friends (and the odd enemy) in the process. The final installment finds Costa finally accepting who and what he is, making peace with his past, enjoying the present and looking forward to the future. All three installments are superbly written with good descriptive prose that brings Costa's world to life. However I did find the characters a little bit of a let down with the three main characters of Costa, Talisa and Paralay playing fairly predictable roles. I would have for Vespia to give each of them a little something different or unexpected rather than following the same route that other fantasy writers have done before her. While this didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the story it did leave me feeling a little flat as I figured out what was going to happen long before it did, which took away the element of surprise from the story. Overall though this is a good addition to the fantasy genre, just nothing ground-breaking.
