Read this book when you have the time to finish it without putting aside for awhile. The story is rich, interesting, intriguing, addicting, powerful, etc. There are a lot of characters who are portrayed in such a way that the reader can feel them in the storyline. The story has several intertwined lines that are well balanced. I seriously enjoyed the book and highly recommend it. This is a very substantial read. I would like to give it 4.5 stars. I cannot give it five stars due to proofreading errors. I was reading along, immersed in the book, and wham there were missing or extra words that made me step back and wonder if I was mis-reading. I will look forward to his next non-Wiccan novel.
