Matthew Keith reviews:
"If I could give this novel 6 stars, I would. I am humbled and dumbstruck at the idea that this is CD Coffelt's debut novel.
There is no way for me to convey how well-written and complete this novel is, in every way. This is one of those novels I strongly considered calling in sick in order to finish reading.
It has grit, substance, and depth that is rarely found in the fantasy genre.If you're a fan of fantasy and have an already-deep reading list, do yourself the favor of adding this one and putting it toward the top.
From the very first paragraph right to the amazing ending, you will not be disappointed. And you will absolutely want more.
"Justus Aubre is a powerful mage who has managed to evade the clutches of the ruling Imperium by lying low and flying under the radar. Into his life walks Sable Rounds who is Number One on the Imperium's Most Wanted list. When the Imperium finds her, they'll find him. A smart man would run like a hell. A man in love might have to make a stand.
What an amazing story from a fabulous new author. It's hard to believe that this is a debut novel. The author's imagination is one of a kind. The writing rivals anything I've ever read. The world building is spectacular and convincing, which isn't always easy to pull off in a contemporary setting. The storyline is absolutely riveting. There just are not enough superlatives to do justice to."
