Artan's Night is a short story that acts as a prequel to the novel Eladria. It is clear, engaging and action packed. Descriptions of characters and environments are strong, and the light references to the greater historical and political context of the universe create a sense that you are being drawn into a living, breathing world with real depth.
You'll fly through Artan's Night and be left with more questions than answers, but that is no bad thing as it leaves you wanting more, and I look forward to continuing the journey though the author's other short story and the full length novel, Eladria.
Likable, relateable characters, lot's of action and efficient use of description to fill out the world without slowing down the narrative.
Well worth a read, and especially as it's free on Smashwords!
