If you are reading this, my successor, then you have destroyed me and taken the power that was mine. Rejoice, my destroyer. You have the lore that you have been looking for, and now you can begin to implement your dream of how the world, how the story, should be.
This is great introduction for what should be a longer novel. The world we are introduced to has a unique new magic system that is based on runic symbols. Runes are a favorite thing of mine since I was akid and first watched Night of the Demon. Casting runes has stuck with me ever since, and seeing the concept in the HBO movie Cast a Deadly Spell reinforced this concept. So, as soon as I saw runes were involved my radar went off and I became interested. It didn't disappoint.
As I said, the story should have been longer, Fierce could have spent a little more time fleshing things out, but since it is a short story that isn't an issue. His writing leaves you wanting more, though, so don't read this unless you want to get stuck waiting for another story set in this creative world.
Green does a great job narrating. He just has one of those hypnotic voices that draws you into the story even deeper than you'd believe, and keeps you there right up to the end. He is a master craftsman. I did recieve a free promo code to review this book, but everything I have said is true and has had no influence on my review.
