I really enjoyed the concept of this story. I cannot wait to see this novel on the big screen. (It's not in the works, but it should be.) Loads of action. Demorn is a kick-ass assassin for hire. The story is filled with gymnastic style martial arts fighting mixed with slice and dice. There are plenty of magic symbols and fierce beasts (my favorite is a green-plate armored, beast with ivory horns and a scaled head).  Time travel is also a big part of this story. I think I appreciated the quick visit with Frank Sinatra because he was familiar.   I also liked the characters. We really only get a glimpse as to who they are.

I did not complete this novel. I got about 45% into it and I started to flounder. I still did not understand who the antagonist is, why is she fighting, and why does everyone keep losing their memories. I don't understand how she travels or where is she traveling to.  I suppose that's to be expected with time travel.  
I won't be rating this book since I didn't finish it, but I hope the author submits it to the Syfy station and they pick it up as a series.
