Every review is great and much appreciated, but like my first Amazon review, this one must also be recognized so it can set-off a great chain of events. :)
A hefty read but amazing and well-worth it. Just the fact that I finished it speaks volumes that I was pulled in that far. And, come to think of it, I can't wait for the rest as this promises to be a monumental series. Bravo, Mr. Garret! Five grand stars.
