Daniel Murano is definitely an author whom the world needs to get familiar with and fast. In a world where fiction writers seem to be following the same old tired, tried and true rules, Daniel Murano is a groundbreaking author. Simply put, he is the real deal. A true original. This book is so vivid in it's details, so compelling in it's descriptions of characters and settings and riveting in it's overall storytelling that it is literally impossible to stop reading once you begin. You are immediately immersed in a world that is strange, alluring and interesting. Daniel Murano has such an amazing imagination that as you read, you can feel the passion that he feels flowing off of every page. The twists and turns in the story are drawn out remarkably well and keep you guessing until you actually feel your pulse quickening. Daniel Murano has made characters that are so original, so of the time and place coinciding with the setting of the story that you have a blast getting to know each and every one of them. Whether or not the characters that you are getting to know are good or evil, well, that is part of the suspense and tension that Daniel Murano so expertly crafts throughout the story. Finally, the story makes you really think and has an incredibly moral underpinning that will change the way you treat this beautiful Earth that we live in. I love this book. Daniel Murano has proven himself with his debut fiction novel that he is a force to be reckoned with. I, quite simply, cannot wait to read this book over and over again. Here's hoping Volume two shows up quickly!
