I enjoyed this book and will be checking out the authors other books looking for more of the same. The author has found a tried and true formula. The hero gets something that gives him a leg up at the beginning of the story, and from then on anything that his enemies throw at him is just something that he repurposes to make him stronger until he is so overpowered that he needs no one. Interesting in the first book, but loses points with every subsequent book. If this is the first of his books, it's worth 4 stars, but it loses half a star for every book you read after that.
