In 4 days you will learn the Mantamaji believed—and rightly—that family is the source of strength. For what good is sacrifice if the warmth in the hearth-stove goes out? But their enemies believed that family was also a weakness, for what is love if not vulnerability? In this—alas, a thousand times alas—their enemies believed rightly, too. http://legendofthemantamaji.com/portfolio/book-one/
Origin arcs can get bogged down in exposition if a writer isn’t careful, and while this initial volume has a lot of it, the story always makes sure to keep things personal as well as keeping up the mysteries involving the cast.

That’s why we are still looking for a few good fans to read the books prior to their release and write an HONEST review on GoodReads.com and then again on Amazon.com when the book publishes.
