What readers said
"The story moves at an enjoyable pace and the swapping of point of view is both enjoyable and helps to keep the pace of the book interesting"
"The inventiveness of the Helm was a pleasant surprise. (no spoilers here) I was expecting the possible cliche' magical device but that was not the case."
"There are great characters at every turn –, some do stick around more than others. Without competition though, Dema the Medusa was a personal favourite – sheer-evil one moment, hints of compassion the next"
"The story lines twist and turn and always kept me guessing."
