Just from the brief introduction about the series, losing ten fingers and ones face is like nothing I have ever read before. Reading this book is really going to be amazing and am curious to know how he'll live each day without fingers.

The only thing that I disliked was the fact that the author started a few stories and failed to follow them to completion. For example, what happened to Thumps and Allan in the second novel?
Ah, yeah. I also dislike this sometimes. But, I'm glad that these forgotten or neglected plot points did not affect your enjoyment of the novel.

It's traumatic to lose a face, never heard of that, but ten fingers sounds familiar, I might try and read this one.

The author does have quite an imagination, judging from the review. The 'face off' stunt he pulls. I wonder how his enemies got to know him after his facial reconstruction. I would find the first book too painful to enjoy. The second book, I could enjoy.

Latest Review: Island Games by Caleb J. Boyer

Perhaps this was the author's intention, but I found myself feeling somewhat lost and disjointed at times reading this novel. I have yet to progress to the rest, and quite honestly I am filled with trepidation because the concept is a bit unpleasant for me, not only the physical losses of fingers and face, but the loss of memory as well. Probably, traumatic for me as I suffered a loss of memory after an unpleasant accident myself. Your review was interesting and comprehensive.

Trauma-induced amnesia would be challenging enough, but the added loss of a face and ten fingers?! Now that would set anyone down a road of vengeful retribution. This sure sounds like an interesting two-volume set. Thank you for sharing your insightful impressions!

I never read a book of this type where a person loses his face. It seems to but a disheartening one. But still I curious to know if the book has a good ending.

Such a tragic story. How difficult life must be for someone who has lost your face and then your fingers. It intrigues me but I think I am too sensitive for this type of book.
