Lots of authors have an amazing first novel and then simply fade away. But others learn and improve, becoming exceptional craftsmen, even masters, of literature. Alex Bledsoe is well on his way to being one of the latter. A year ago I reviewed Bledsoe's Wake of the Bloody Angel, the fourth book in another series. Then I went back, as I said I would, and read the first one in that series. I was seriously disappointed by it--very graphic sex and violence, not made up for by quality.
