I don’t want to give away any more spoilers. The copy I read was a pdf that the author gifted me for a review. I’ve since bought the kindle, mobi, version and the formatting is much better. The editing was excellent and I enjoyed the story. Middle Haven and the Realm’s world building is reminiscent of C.S. Lewis work The Great Divorce. The varied personalities and the back stories of the other characters who dwell in the Realm bring depth. This one gets a five out of five from me.
