Summary of the Book:
Charlatan. Brute. Apostate. Desperate. Outcast. Finch Crushluck is no Death Priest. But he’s posing as one to make a fortune in pursuit of an amulet that contains the blood of First, a powerful alien being of pure entropy. Finch is not alone in his quest. Seduced by First’s promise of power, a holy man betrays his faith and seeks the amulet to free the creature. To save her kidnapped daughter, a merchant captain delivers the ransom of a gilded dirigible to First. To avenge the murder of his family, a giant risks the fate of the world by using the amulet as bait to lure a hated foe and his monstrous war machine into combat. First waits for them in the heart of a nightmare landscape of destruction and madness. But the greatest dangers Finch and his companions face on their journey are deceit and disdain. The clash of their desires can destroy First or unleash him from his ancient prison. They can save the world. Or hasten its doom.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This book has left me with a lot to think about. Of course I can’t tell you if they save or bring on destruction of the world. It is an adventure that a group of misfits all end up going on for their very own reasons. Not all of them are in it for the right ones. First kind of scares me with all that ancient talk and all the think he could do. I had a feeling that someone was going to turn on them and all hell would back lose. I feel a little strange about this. It is like something from an ancient and dark prophecy. It needs more attention brought to it.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
