Although some of the authors plots can be a bit of a standard concept in most books and movies these days, Falconer knows how to add enough twist to make his books stand out from the mass. Even when I was starting to doubt his ability to have new ideas on old plots, he surprised me every single time!
This being the third book I’ve read of his, I think it’s safe to say I really like his writing style. He packs it so full of action, it’s almost non-stop. The climaxes in the book are often, with very little time in between. In this book, there seems to be a theme of conspiracy and espionage.
Of course, Falconer shows off his knowledge of military intelligence, and other combative training which goes great with his imagination on what the government and society would be like in the intense situations he writes.
One of my favorite aspects of Falconer’s writing style is the way he can drop hints about the mysteries of the books, making the reader feel involved in the unveiling and uncovering process. He’s definitely not one of those authors who just fills the pages with filler, everything he writes has purpose and reason.
All his characters are plenty developed, so it was great to get reconnected with them again, after book 1. I have already read book 1, and wouldn’t recommend skipping it before reading. The characters are so badass they’re worth becoming invested in with book 1. It’s a 5/5 for me!
