Return from the dark side is remarkable and in Argon's style it is well done and extremely believable.

If you remember the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie?

There were at least four places that could have ended and not harmed the story.

Well the same thing here with one major exception. It would have harmed the story. Just when you feel they have gone as far as they can with the story line another twist appears. A twist that enhances and brings out the character of the two main subjects of the story.

Ok, that's enough atta boys, Argon can send me the Christmas gift now.

The story starts out at a low point in the life of the the Hero. Then it gets better. You have Hero meets damsel in distress, rescues, meets and falls in love, looses, then falls in love again. You get the story.

All of this is set in the present dangerous world we live in and in spite of all the obstacles he gets the love of his life and the bonus all heroes should have.

I refuse to give spoilers. If you have read anything else by Argon, you'll understand there are a few surprises.

Enjoy. Don't pass this one by.
