A very intriguing plot, and I love all the symbols on the shield. I must learn more!
Love this intriguing cover. Can't wait for more from this author!
This is clever writing and a clever story. Calling a hero Chaos is a clue to what is to follow. Conflict and suspense and surprising twists. Complicated world and some not so very nice characters. I love a baddie - demons taking human form to do what? Well you'll have to get it to find out! A great read
I love this cover. A thrilling and traditional concept - love going old skool!
