Ellis's second installment in the Forgotten Origins Trilogy is a fast-paced adventure as, once again, the world faces an imminent threat. But more than that, this book has demonstrated the author's growing skill in developing characters who the reader comes to know and care about. I particularly enjoyed the glimpse we were given into how the events of the last novel had affected the wider world.
There are times when the plot became quite complex, but generally this was handled with skill. An enjoyable SciFi read with a creative approach.
