I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
I truly hope to read some more about Damian Montgomery in the future, but this will nicely tide me over ;)
I was drawn into the story, loved it!
I didn't love the author's other books/worlds as much as the starship mage/mageking of mars universe. They just didn't klick with me the same way.
I would recommend though to start with the original series before picking this one up.
The timelines do overlap a bit (e.g. Hand Stealy is still alive in this one), but that doesn't hurt the story.
