The cover is attractive and hints at the adventure which begins on the very first page. Protagonist Michael Kingman has been branded (literally) for being a member of the family whose patriarch killed the ruler in years past. It can’t be a coincidence that Michael’s last name seems ironic. The preview pages include a few allusions to magical powers, so there seems to be a guarantee of an interesting fantasy world. The title interests me even more than the short first glimpse.
