I agree with everyone, this reads like a polished epic, not a book by an indie author. I'm not actually done yet, but pretty clear its likely to be my top indie find, if you can still call it an indie find. The only thing that struck me as unprofessional was the fact that the lengthy prologue was all in italics. It was way too lengthy for that, was kind of annoying. Funny thing, I saw it at the top of the amazon fantasy section with a 5 star average rating, and I wouldnt even read the description because it sounded like a vampire book. I must have passed over it a dozen times before I looked at it.
