A short prequel to Forged In Death, Book 1 of The Death Wizard Chronicles.I think the author needs to slow it down a little. Somes of the scenes seemed rushed and need a little more depth to pull the reader in.Saying that I think this has real potential. The author has created very vivid characters and various tribes. The description of the Tarogs or the Torgon gave me flashbacks of the worms in Dune. Figures slithering under the sand and emerging in the desert.The author obviously has an abundance of creative ideas.I received a copy of this via NetGalley.
