I received a copy of this book for my honest review.
This is a fast action prequel to another longer book (Iron William and the Carpenter's Tears). If you are new to this adventure I suggest you start with this one first, as it provides some background for adventures that follow. It's written in what strikes me in the style of the Indiana Jones movie adventures. There's not a lot of character development, there is some dialogue, and there is a lot of action, which propels this story forward.
For those readers who enjoy fast action adventure, this is a recommended read.
