    "Just Brilliant!"

    Wow, what a ride! I couldn't guess what was coming for the entire story and it was as rivetting as the first. It just gets better. I hope there will be another, I can't wait!

    Story
    "Always finding out why the rules exist..."

    ...the hard way. Victor believes intelligence equals or surpasses wisdom. The story is a well written and very immaginative depictiin of what led the growing intellect, but lacking a moral compass, to tragedy.

    Story
    "Imaginative, well delivered novella"

    Riveting story, well-delivered by Luke Daniels (as always). The book felt compressed as if the author was writing under a page limit. As a result the characters were not thoroughly developed and the story skipped quickly from one event to the next.
