This is a nice addition to my Road to Publication Mini-series (which by the way will be updated with a new post quite soon). But anyway, if you are curious about little details of my own personal journey to becoming an author, check out this fun interview here: http://carmenferreiroesteban.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/my-road-to-publication-sabrina-benulis/#comment-479
There is also a link at the bottom of the page to a great review of ARCHON.
As an aside, I am currently watching a horror/mystery anime called Another
which so far has been quite intriguing. You can find it streaming on http://www.crunchyroll.com/. The interesting thing is that I notice parallels to the development of this particular show and ARCHON. Both start out slowly but with an effective and creepy atmosphere. What I find even more interesting is how few fantasy/horror books take the mystery approach.
Anyway, I'll have to continue watching this series to make a definitive judgment on it, but I'll warn you, they don't shy away from some real scares. >_<
