Summary: (from goodreads) The last few grueling years of training have served Kaltor well. He’s learned to harness the magic within his body, overcome a stronger opponent, avoid capture, and everything else an assassin-in-training needs to survive.Or so he thought.
But when those they protect at an excavation site release a demon from the Abyss itself, Kaltor realizes just how poorly prepared they all are for what’s coming. Within a single night, their mining camp of one thousand people plummets to a couple hundred terrified survivors, the majority turned against each other by the demon’s potent abilities. Then she turns towards Shaylis, the largest city in the region, for the next stage of her plan.
In a constant battle of both steel and strategy Kaltor and his friends struggle to delay, deceive and defeat their opponent, who’s spent the last thousand years planning out every detail of her assault to perfection. As the number of casualties mounts and the her final plan comes to light, Kaltor is left with only one option. He must draw on the secret power within himself, knowing if his true identity is discovered, his life and the fate of the world, will be changed forever.

If you like books that start off slow and try to keep you drawn in page after page without having you stop to do anything like housework or take after the kids then this is the book for you. When I first started reading it. It started off really slow and they kept rambling on about certain things that went on for pages and pages. I was wondering when they were going to get to the point. I had to put the book down a couple of times and get back to it to see if it can get better.. The author made the main character a really bad ass that could kick anybodies butts at any time. But the thing in this book if he helps the village that was attacked and people noticed his powers and what he can do then they will know his true identity. He doesn't want that to happen because his life and the fate of everybody's lives around him will be affected..

I would recommend this book for somebody that likes action novels that involves characters that have secret identities and that like to face battle in their lives. I am the type of person that loves romance, mystery and life novels. I don't mind action novels if they have a romantic story intertwined in the center. I know I must be a romantic at heart. But when you read so many romantic novels you want your life to be like one. In the end I recommend anybody to read this novel and his sequel to this book...

Thanks to the author we are offering 3 ebook copies of Decoy.

  1. I haven't heard of this one, but thanks for sharing you're review. I'm not sure if it will be for me, I like to get hooked from the first page. I really like a preface that draws me in, and then a backtrack to see how the story gets to that point.
