The main character is certainly very evil, but I was still drawn to him. (Only so many books you can read in a row where the hero is the knight in shining armor.) A captivating story that moves along at a brisk pace. It avoids length, boring descriptions and gives the story depth with flash backs to the past. This gives the story context in an interesting manner. I'd recommend this book for 16+ yo readers because it is very gory. I particularly liked the writer's style and quality of writing - he reads as someone who has actually worked to hone his craft. The author uses his skills to make his story a captivating and engaging experience. There are too many books these days with incorrect grammar and poor sentence construction - this author is not one of them.
