If you're looking for something completely innovative, exciting, and really smart, you'll enjoy this book.
This is a suspense story that could also be a police procedural, a mystery, and... or... an alternative creation myth. There are so many enticing passages in this book that honestly, I find it nearly impossible to choose a favorite.
Andrew is a master storyteller, and he has combined all his strengths in world building, encouraging empathy between the reader and the characters, as well as solid scene set up to bring us an evocative tale that could be as old as time... and yet, it is so contemporary that we wonder if it hasn't been hiding in plain sight, right around the corner. To all of this, he has added delightful snark and deep passion to the page, and it will not let you go.
If that isn't enough, there is a serious morality question he provokes, yet doesn't demand that the reader agree. Some will, some won't. This is a tremendous testament to Andrew's skill. A reader's agreement or disagreement with the choices the characters make doesn't negate the rush of the story he is sharing. The adventure is high stakes, physically and intellectually... but more interesting than all of these is the risks Andrew takes to invite readers down a hidden passage, the walls oozing with fear, love, greed, and the premonition of possibility.
When I asked, Andrew told me that this book was the first in a new series... and I can assure you, I'll be nagging him to be first in line when the next one is ready to read!
