Cadel Piggots life has a lot of sadness. But in the end, Cadel takes charge of his destiny. The part I like the best is that Cadel doesn't let the evil he sees around him influence how he feels! I felt like cheering for him. I really loved this book and went right back to audible and bought the sequel. I have recommended this book to my teenage kids. This book is for young and old alike. Oh, and the reader is excellent!
Management consultant, video game player, avid reader of all types of books, and happily married father of four. I'll read just about anything, from Fantasy and SciFi, to mysteries and ChickLit.
The story starts of with a clever, "immoral" twist, switching around our perceptions of good versus evil. Ultimately though, the author seems to "chicken out" and loops back towards a very predictable and conventional ending. I don't really see the potential for a sequel to this book, and its a shame - the central theme on the nature of morality could have used more exploration. Worthwhile as a purchase.
