When Thomas of Xueltion finds his father has been murdered, he vows to avenge his death. He works at becoming a skilled assassin. However, he must use his ingenuity when he discovers his father's killer is one of the Prakani, a superhuman race who rules the land of Xuelition.
When the government hires Thomas to recover bonds from an employee, his life becomes like the ancient ouroboros symbol, a never ending cycle that returns to where he started. In a surprise twist of events, Thomas receives a new challenge that will change the course of his life.
Author Christopher Turkel's dystopian future fantasy will delight the young adult fantasy fan. While the prologue initially distracts from the story placement, once the pieces fit together, the pacing picks up. Good for the fantasy minded reader who likes a quick read and easily connects to the main character. Also good for the reader who looks forward to new books in a series.
