Review: I have never read any stories by this author and I will admit that when I first started reading it, I had my misgivings about it. However the further I got into the story, lets just say I was quite shocked and very pleased.

Many years ago technology was something well known and used. That is until the gods destroyed it and killed most of those who used it. Prome finds an amulet in some ruins of old and ancient city. He just thought it was a cute trinket, but it leads him and his friends on a mighty chase.

I had trouble with the first parts of the story and the characters and was about to give up reading it. It wasn’t until I got into the middle of the book that things to a turn. I will also admit that I was thinking it was going to be Prome and Malia, which doesn’t sit with me. So when our sexy little Garbos comes into the picture, you can see the heat flowing. It takes Prome time to decided that he likes Garbos more then he did Malia, well for love anyway. His attitude towards Garbos though, had me wishing Prome would get dumped on his head. It took me some time to figure it out though. Although for a moment there, I was wondering about Pyrias. Could have made a sweet third, but the author made this story just work.

Like I said above it did take some time to get into the story but I was pleased with the ending. It also seemed like the author hinted at maybe a second book would be possible. In that case I am ready to read it. I had a lot of fun with this story and might be checking this author out a bit more in the future.
