Michael has a unique ability to make the macabre and the ugly very exciting without letting the reader lose sight of the fact they should not be mistaken for glory. His selection of heroes is pretty much the norm, but are to my mind, more real than a lot of other epics. This is the first book of his I have read, but it will not be the last. I can't wait to get my hands on WHEN DRAGONS RAGE. Keep it up Michael.
