If you are looking for a well written, adventurous fantasy read, then this is a great choice. The book was very clean and had a solid story line that was mostly action, but also with some light romance thrown in as well. I really enjoyed the "voice" of the author and appreciated how there was plenty of detail to follow, but enough anticipation to keep you wanting to turn the pages until the end. It is not an incredibly long story, and I read it easily over the weekend. Overall, I felt it was a nice story and well worth the purchase price and I would recommend it.

The first thing that grabbed me about Karachi: Jacob's Story, Book 1 was Ray Thomas's succinct and precise writing style. He says a lot in a few words, and this story covers a lot of ground. You have the story of a boy trying to find his place in the world, learning about his new-found powers, and eventually trying to sort out who he loves and how to protect them. The book is full of intrigue, mystery, action, and even a little romance; it combines the familiarity of The Call of the Wild with the intrigue of Twilight. The pacing is quick but no so much that you don't get an excellent feel for the depth of each character, and Thomas always leaves you wanting more with each turn of the page. I hope Book 2 is released soon because I can't wait to see what happens to Jacob and his pack next!
