It's always surprising when a newer author turns out a story as well written as this one was. It contains far fewer technical flaws than most (formatting errors excluded), makes what would normally be a completely unlikeable and unbelievable main character both sympathetic and interesting, blends humor into the narrative seamlessly, and even shows some originality.

Probably the biggest complaint I have with the story - other than the amount and content of the back story introduced into the narrative - would be the author's repeated use of the story as a forum for social commentary. This is, however, hardly an issue exclusive to this particular author, and thus shows clearly that I thought it a particularly good story.

Overall, I'd consider this a good action-based romance, and I really would recommend it to pretty much anyone who is looking for a good story. I'd suggest those just looking for stroke look elsewhere, though.
