Great readAt first I wasn t sure about getting into this book I stuck with it and then it was like a steep water slide, a wild fast ride The book slows again in the middle especially when the author seems to pontificate about a certain book written in the real world Other than that, a fast, snow skiing downhill race with an avalanche chasing your heals Exciting novel Highly recommended.

Book 2 in a series, I already read 1 Because I was reading on Kindle I did not have a clear feel where I was in the story near the end At the climax so I did not know exactly what would be the climax That was somewhat disconcerting for me, and yet also liberating, as though at any moment, it might end even though there is one book in this trio It s quite difficult to see if the author has any identifiable political positions, since at one time the speeches in the book sound like Book 2 in a seri [...]
