The investigations into the fire at the home of Will and Hope Stark had finally ended. The fire itself had burned with such intensity that everything within the walls of the house had been turned to ash.
What I expected:
A tale of someone battling a sect or some such, with twists of demons thrown possibly.
What it was:
It was the tale of a family and the groups they are linked to, focuses around one man Will Stark. It was mostly a well told tale. I enjoyed reading it. I finished is some time ago and have had time to ponder it and mull over the storyline somewhat. I guess I will have forgotten any annoyances that there may have been, but they can’t have been too bad if indeed they were there, else I would remember them! The story does keep coming back to me and not in a bad way, like some books or films where you keep going over the flaws in the plot or execution. I will be reading the second book in due course to see where the story goes and to see if the author maintains the standard of the first book.

A Question of Will (The Aliomenti Saga – Book 1): Volume 1
They murdered his wife and son. They burned down his house. They beat him within an inch of his life. And then they realized they had the wrong man.
They should have killed him when they had the chance.
Will Stark is a self-made multi-billionaire, happily married and a proud father. He arrives home to find his house destroyed and his family murdered, and is himself rescued from certain death by a mysterious trio.
His rescuers are part of a splinter faction of a centuries-old secret society that has developed incredible technological advances, and unlocked the method to release humanity’s innate potential, and skills long thought the realm of magic. Will was mistakenly believed to be a key dissident and fugitive, on the run from the primary group, known as the Aliomenti.
Society believes him dead, and Will elects to work from the shadows to learn the secrets of the Aliomenti, secrets that can help him seek his own form of vengeance.
Or, perhaps, become the man they’d sought all along.
