Interesting, Mysterious and Adventurous
What more could you want in a novel? I loved the story of Andrew Correo and how he had to fight for something he never would've dreamed of wanting before Dominic came into his life with his inheritance. The story moved forward at a steady pace as Andrew and his adversary studied clues to find their next prize. The winner of the game would win the kingdom, so to speak.
I loved many things about the "Four Pieces For Power" story and the writing. I loved the short chapters and I liked the way Mr. Estes divided up the scenes and brought everything together in the end. I loved the different locations introduced as the story moved forward. I give this book a 4.5 which I rounded up to 5. I can't wait to read the next book of the Vendicatori series.
Next Five books and short stories on my reading list are:
Torg's First Death, Short from The Death Wizard Chronicles by Jim Melvin;
