    Globe-Hurler is a journey of end-to-end tension. I have never read a fantasy/science-fiction novel before but decided to start here due to the glowing reviews. I made the right call. Mr. Mason snares the reader from page one, where the hero is already in peril. The action moves quickly while the relationships between the well-crafted characters bloom. I admire an author who can construct a world unlike any I have imagined before, yet the world itself still feels natural once I am immersed in it. I also admire Mr. Mason’s ability to create a prevailing sense of dread, akin to the novel 1984 or of the sort. I have no apprehension recommending this book.
