This was a solid story.  I enjoyed it quite a bit.  However, I thought it plodded along in some places - although never slowly enough to lose my interest.  The biggest gripe I have with it is that I didn't understand how the protag knew the map to the underworld etc. yet no one else did.  His role sounded akin to mayor, not High Priest (granted, I do not know fully the scope of his title).  I also hoped for a slightly darker ending, but not everything can be a downer I suppose!  But besides that, I really liked this story.

The language was good and never came across as clumsy, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it was great: again, nothing really stood out for me.

Great reading, great intro and outro.
