I finished reading A Man Betrayed and it was a really great book, I felt evan better than the first book. Baraslis is a great villian and one of the best I've seen in a long time. All the characters are interesting, Taawl,Melli,Jack,Bodger,Grift,Nabber,Kylock,and Cathrine,are all interesting characters,all though my favorites are Bodger and Grift they are funny and Nabber reminds me of Tas the Kender(from DRagonlance). I hope after the 3 books J.V.Jones comes back to this world and continues the story of Jack and Tarissa, and Jack looks for her,I think the made a good couple. all in all a great story I highly recommened the book and series.
