I liked this story! Quite honestly, I wasn't expecting much except a quick read to kill some time. Surprisingly, I got a clever, interesting story that hooked me and made me read it in one afternoon. The author is quite clever with a phrase (IMHO) - there were several lines that had me LOL. I mean, come on, how many times are you gonna read "...raped by a ferret..."? I hope to see more by this author and I would love to read more work featuring the main character and his family and enemies.
