I love how the author makes you visualize what happens to a person who dies. The starting especially he is protraying a man who was bound and died. It sounds funny when its reading( well funny because i am a Jamaican), HE ACTUALLY DID GOOD WITH THE JAMAICAN CREOLE. The ghetto back then was harder , it is still hard as well but persons are coping realizing that the govenrment does nothing for the poor, so i believe the author or the reader did bring this out right. I have a hard time following who he was talking about or what characters thery were. Maybe if introducing themselves at the starting with some drama or so would help. Overall good.

The Witch's Reign...a land of unnatural hellish cold ruled over by the Ice Witch herself, who is in turn guarded by three creatures - Wolf, Bear, and Raven. Those lovely beasts derive their power directly from their mistress and just happen to kill any who cross their paths. To get there, you first must pass through the Dragon's Ground. Full of, you guessed it, dragons who for the record, also do not like trespassers. Sounds like a fun place to go, doesn't it? Yeah, not so much.
