The story was gripping at first and the creativity of what Mr. Waggoner displayed on the page by the world-building, weapons, and characters, both human and created, was a real fantastical treat.

The story seemed to fizzle out for me as some reads do when new weapons, worlds, and other things need to be introduced and explained. I have to say that it was overdone in this particular book and it did take away from the pacing of the story.

With the main character, Audra, being human and fighting with the big dogs, she always seemed to be unprepared; no weapon, last shot, or knocked out. Very inconvenient.

While I enjoyed the idea behind this read, I found it hard to connect with Audra. 

I will say that there was enough substance for me to want to read the next in the series.

About Tim Waggoner

Tim Waggoner wrote his first story at the age of five, when he created a comic book version of King Kong vs. Godzilla on a stenographer’s pad. It took him a few more years until he began selling professionally, though. Overall, he has published close to thirty novels and three short story collections, and his articles on writing have appeared in Writer’s Digest and Writers’ Journal, among other publications. He teaches creative writing at Sinclair Community College and in Seton Hill University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program. He hopes to continue writing and teaching until he keels over dead, after which he wants to be stuffed and mounted, and then placed in front of his computer terminal.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.
