What a great second book in the series. We explore the world through the eyes of Tomas who is the leader of a street gang. This point of view allows the author to flesh out the relationships between the major characters. This I particularly enjoyed. The story also touches on the psychological damage war can do to a person be they combatant or civilian.
This is a gritty well told story of power, corruption, intrigue and personal relationships.
Book one was one of my favourite reads of last year and I therefore had high expectations coming into this sequel. Peter McLean has delivered a thoroughly enjoyable story full of action, intrigue while maintaining a human element which surpassed my expectations.
