Scott James Thomas is a geophysics by day, using his programming skills to employ magnetic, gravity and electromagnetic radiation in the hunt for base metal deposits. By night he is an avid fan of space exploration, following the floundering efforts of mankind to leave Earth.
He enjoys reading and writing science fiction. For his writings, he has found inspiration in the works of Orson Scott Card, who he sees as a excellent style role model.

Where do I start?
The character progression as the book progresses is in sync and is so subtle, that you don't realize how much you've gotten to know each character until the end of the book. While none of the characters change, each key point gives you more insight to respective personalities, habits, and heart.
This novel has it all. While mainly fantasy, there's action, comedy, love, drama, science fiction, splashed with horror, suspense, and mystery. All of the genres are masterfully woven together to create a world as real as our own. With fast paced changes, one never tires of reading the same thing.
Too often I find myself a) scuffing at fluffy battles or b) repulsed by tales of gouged eyeballs and spilled intestines. Thomas has mastered writing battle scenes that are realistic, detailed, and suspenseful without breaking the curtain of reality.
This book reminds me what it means to love someone unconditionally. Reminds me that flaws are within all of us, and we should surround ourselves with people who accept them, regardless of how infuriating they can be.
One word: Flandre.
This novel fully engulfed me, and at the end I was left with the rare sting of pain that comes with finishing a book that I really loved.
