Pleased to see that this version now includes the prequel novella which deftly provides the back story that was missing from the prior book 1.
A very pleasant change to have a male main character, they seem to be a rare breed of late. Also helps that Rune's a likeable, cheeky little sod, ever quick with the quips regardless of whether they lead him into trouble, which they invariably do!
Also like the two young ones he took under his wing, Alex the angry and his sister Jo who's quite the talented hacker.
An interesting world created, replete with supernatural denizens of various sorts. Magic exists, and refreshingly, its use has adverse consequences, especially for Rune.
A tale that relies on persistently bad decision making to progress the story-line leaving little but frustration in it's wake. Irresponsibly defining authority for no good reason one minute while naively complying when it would be wise to resist. The final scene was particularly obnoxious. I'll be avoiding this series.
