Smashwords book reviews by Daryl VanQuakebeke

    I've always been into the fantasy/sci-fi books, when I saw this as an option and read the description I had to try it and I'm very glad I did! In my opinion it's a PG-13 version of similar books in this genre which gives people from about junior high age or so and older a very good read! The characters are easy to follow and combine light romance, comedy, seriousness, and light suspense. The hardest part would be the foreign language that is used occasionally. However, some of it can be loosely processed in the context of what's being said and the rest can easily be translated. It reminds me a lot of the hit show "The Black List", and other similar shows, using different people, sometimes complete strangers, with "talents" or powers to complete a contracted job. Very detailed descriptions of surroundings and characters along with clever comments made to give more information about the person or situation and sometimes to just add comedy. I'm a slow but avid reader and this book read very quick and smooth. This is a good start to a great future and I can't wait to see what else is in store from this series and this author team!
