Raingun (The Talan Revolt, #1)

Raingun (The Talan Revolt, #1) - John Blackport This is an exciting, fast-paced novel set in a historical fantasy world with a lot of magic and fighting. I like how the hero is conflicted in his desires and loyalties, and how his inner conflict plays out in action.A small thing I found particularly helpful is that many chapters are prefaced with the place, the year and the hero's age (e.g. "San Bitante, Prosper, 1477 - Ricky Rivoire is four years old"). Normally, when novels jump backwards and forwards in time and place, I get easily confused.These little additions prevented confusion and I was able to immerse myself immediately into each chapter.
