Another great instalment in The Light Blade series. In fact, I actually think I enjoyed this one the best as we see inside of the Na’Reish society. We learn more about this world and there's surprises in store as our hero Arek finds out....

A satisfying conclusion to The Anomaly series. The character of John is kind, gentle, grave and strong. But he didn't always used to be. Eve is feisty and longing for freedom and has a hell of a secret.
