Was well entertained by this group of eight great stories. Looking forward to seeing more of these combinations.

To be honest, the book didn't grab me right away...the syntax was a little odd and not knowing the culture of the protagonist made it challenging to understand who he was, what he was doing, just what his deal was. Thing is, the more I read the better I liked it. All too soon the book ended - except it wasn't the end. Not even close. Now I can't wait to find out what happens next! From a rather picky, persnickety reader I can tell you: you won't be sorry starting this series. Or continuing it, I'll wager...
