In a world were publicity literally equals power you want to pay the bards.

By Taulsn, author of Reaper

Jun 7, 2015: This review is written as of chapter 7, and so far I’m enjoying it. The ability system is unique, and the world seems expansive. The characters so far a surprisingly well fleshed out and individual.

The one drawback I’ve found is it’s a lot of information very quickly. So it can feel info dumpy at times. However, they are well handled, so it isn’t very detrimental to the otherwise very good writing.

Overall, I like it. Check it out.
