Just read yr Empire of the Saviours. Damn Damn Damn!!! Now I’ll have to go and read yr 1st triology – you mean man you. Out of all the characters of EoS; Torpeth is outstanding. What an awesome character, or am I so warped? He is what is missing from most stories nowadays, the little intriguing habits that make characters come to life, make them human …… or not.
Well done Mr Dalton, your magic reigns, keep it coming.
Hey TMD, good to hear from you. Glad you liked Empire and don’t want your money back. LOL. Book 2, Gateway of the Saviours, went on release a fortnight ago, of course, so there’s plenty more of Torpeth to be had (185,000 words, to be exact). He’s a great character, especially in the scenes he shares with the Minister. Got a soft spot for Freda too, of course, and the Peculiar. All the best. Adam PS and I’m half way through writing book 3 at the mo (Tithe of the Saviours) – gotta finish it by 1 Aug this year.
