Strangely enough, the best part of this book about doom, gloom, and evil was the humor! David has a terrible way with words that leads to many a baffling metaphor whose explanation is almost weirder than the metaphor itself, but his frequent pauses to explain his thoughts help to lighten the mood. This book is the first in a series, with Firefight coming out later this year, and if the sequels are as good as this first book I will be first in line to read them when they arrive!
