The story and the writing are great, just as was true of the other novels in the Empire and In Her Name series. But there is one problem. Multiple chapters are in italics. I find it difficult to read so much text in italics -- especially when there appears to be no reason for using italics. I don't know if this was a deliberate decision or something went wrong in the creation of the ePub file, but at least this reader is unhappy -- not with the writing or the story, but with the extensive use of italics, nearly every other chapter. If you find reading italic print is difficult, then this book should be avoided even though it is exceptionally well-written.

I rate the book 5 stars for the writing and the story development. I think it unfair to rate a book based on formatting problems that are easily corrected. However, as much as I looked forward to buying and reading this book, had I known of the italics problem in advance, I would not have bought the book. At my age, it is simply too difficult and tiring to read so many chapters in italic.

Fantastic read, I have truly enjoyed ever one of the books in this series. While it stands on it's own, it also takes you deeper into the Kreelan universe. I could not put it down as Michael paints a bright mural in the mind filled with detail and vibrant colors. Thank you, looking forward to the next one.
