Harken is already distinguishing itself from the Bran Hambric books. These first three chapters are edgier and less quirky, but still intriguing. There are layers of mystery and some unexpected twists, including the reason why there is an eye hidden in the "a" of the book title. And Chapter 3 does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, leaving us all counting down the next month before the book comes out.
Until then, head over to readharken.com and download the preview chapters for yourself. It'll be an hour or two's reading well spent.
Also, don't forget to add Harken on Goodreads.
