After reading this thread, seeing the positive reviews on Amazon and reading what the story is about I ended up picking this up last night off Amazon.
I'm a very fidgety reader so if something doesn't draw me in right away I tend to give up on books. I read through the first 3 chapters last night and this looks like something I'll be finishing ... caught my attention and drew me in.
Look forward to finishing the story.
Congrats on the success Hugh and good luck in the future.
