Now, that is a starting sentence for a book. Gives you more than enough to hang onto, but gets you interested. And, it sets you up for the roller coaster ride that is coming. Hard to say too much good about Mirror Empire.
(addendum by Shiri: Luke stole mine. *shakes fist* I can’t do an assessment of the book as a whole yet, as I’m only 12% in, but this is definitely one of the best first lines I’ve ever read).
