First book in the trilogy. With this book, I had a hard time staying focused on the first half. Very descriptive about the area and current events in the small town. Just lost my focus while I was waiting for the story to begin. I was glad that I stayed with it and enjoyed the rest of the book. The other books are much better. I loved the idea of the Indian and Wraith...possibly my favorite characters.
this book stands on its' own..One the hottest 4th of july weekend in decades, 2 m3n have come tho Hopewell, Illinois, site of a lengthy , bitter steel strike..one is a demon dark servant of the void,who will use the anger and frustration to attain a secret goal..the other is am man, a Knight of the Word, a man Who while he sleeps lives in the hell of the would will become if her fails to change its course..he has the ability to see the future..will he have the power to change it..and they are both tied to a 14 yr-old girl who is tied to hopewell, the people and the fate of humanity....a great read
