The Dark Defiles is best of the series. Morgan built a fascinating world, dirt and all, and populated it will heroes that were also real people. Morgan dissects the idea of hero and looks at it from every angle. Our three protagonists aren't anti-heroes they are just flawed. While they deal with their flaws they realize that in the end heroes don't get to live happily ever after. * Buzzy Mag * Super fluid action thriller... amped-up Chandler in space. * GUARDIAN * A hugely entertaining and smartly written book. * SFX MAGAZINE * A sheer pyrotechnic triumph: wonderfully imaginative, written in overdrive, mercilessly violent... A twisted conundrum and a hell of a ride! * CRIME TIME *
