Nicholas Ryan Howard has woven a tale of adventure with characters you can't help but want to know and follow into the abyss. Even though he was now immortal, Vant Hu'l's humanity was what drew you in. I loved the relationship with Skii Tavee. The father/daughter banter was great and made you wish she really was her daughter. But it was the *twist* at the end that has me BEGGING for the sequel.
This is not a genre I normally read but I loved every word.
