Travis Morgan is beside himself, angry and nearly inconsolable as Deimos has seemingly risen from the grave and stolen away the son he never knew he had.  It is nice to see the Warlord in another light.  Most often he is the headstrong warrior rushing into battle without a thought for his own safety but always with the best intentions.  Here we finally get to see a vulnerability to the character that was not even present when he thought he had lost Tara.  Of course it does not last too long as he and Tara set out to rescue the child.  There are some great action scenes in the book as well, as they face off against Shakakhan, the wooden idol.  A silly name, but a great visual by Mike Grell as our heroes try to retrieve the eye for a witch who will tell them where Deimos might be.  Why Deimos needs to spout off a monologue about how he will bring about Morgan’s downfall when no one else is around is a little strange, even though it was obviously for dramatic effect.  As the Warlord is now on the trail of his most hated enemy, if nothing else, it will be one crazy vengeance-fueled ride.
