It’s worth reading in spite of the flaws.
Right in front of Kristin, Liliana began to undress, then her body contorted and she became a duplicate of the woman tied in the chair. Even Liliana’s voice sounded like Kristin. But there were passcodes and other security measures, and Kristin told them she would never give them that information. But torture wasn’t needed. As Aleister walked out to get something to eat, Liliana consumed her meal as well, amid screams of terror and agony.
Paxton Locke awoke blindfolded and with a rubber block between his teeth. His thoughts were foggy and he knew he had been drugged. Using his senses, he tried to make sense of his predicament. His popping ears let him know he was on an airplane, arms and legs strapped into the seat to prevent movement. A wizard, Paxton tried a spell to get him free, but nothing happened. An alarm went off and he heard screams of “He’s flat-lined, get the paddles!” But no one came near him – there must be someone else here too. He struggled again to escape as his captors focused on the other person, but they noticed his struggling and an injection dropped him again into unconsciousness. He woke up next as they threw him into a prison cell.
Cassie Hatcher had been kidnapped by Paxton’s psychotic witch mother, Helen, who had escaped the federal prison where she had been locked up for murder. Helen had spelled her and stolen a car, and they were now heading to Maine. Cassie’s kidnapping would keep Paxton reacting emotionally and Helen would use that advantage against him. Would she succeed this time? Would Paxton even be able to get to Cassie to save her when he had no idea where he was, why, and his magic was disabled?
The book was well-written and immediately brought the reader into the story with the opening scene. Allowing the reader’s ramped up imagination to fill in the blank spaces was brilliant in pushing the story line to breakneck speed and suspense. The characters were well-depicted, immediately displaying their strengths and capabilities. Grab your copy and race with Paxton to the conclusion as multiple incidents converge into an amazing finale!
Once again, this is a brilliantly executed plot. Even the tangential subplot that becomes a thread to be untangled in the rest of the series is nicely place. It effects the plot of this book, sets up for the next book, and we move right along.
In short, there's nothing like C4 to cut through red tape.
I'm not sure if I can add anything new to my review that isn't a spoiler. Though I will admit that the historical aspects we have revealed to us over the course of the novel are very interesting.
And if you think I mean a mention here or there, no. There are whole characters who are historical references. I think I have about or or three figured out.
But yeah, a lot of what impressed me about this book was the setup for everything to come. It almost feels like a three-book origin story.
Yeah, I know it almost feels like cheating that I'm saying so little. But everything interesting really is a spoiler... and I read the ARC for this book months ago, and I'm a bit rusty trying to catch up to my book reviews.
And damn does Paxton want to be Harry Dresden when he grows up... if he grows up. Right down to pissing off everybody he meets. And if anything ever happens to Butcher (God forbid), Humphreys can Sanderson in as replacement quite well.
And I like the punchline. Very Terry Goodkind.... except for the speeches. There are no speeches.
Unfortunately there are other factions that are not so sure about which side of the good and evil scale Paxton is on and they keep putting roadblocks in his way as he tries to get to his mother before she causes more causalities.
In true Paxton fashion he gets his butt handed to him several times and now he’s in a prison he can’t escape from. His self-decrypting humor has not deserted him and he uses it judiciously in this part of the story.
The story progresses at a fast walking pace, but it still has enough movement to hold your attention. There a few parts that are a little murky and sort of brought me out of the story a little but not enough to make me lose a connection to him or to the members of the clandestine group that has been keeping tabs on Paxton.
Paxton has certainly grown up from the first installment. There is a lot going on in this part of the story and we are finally let in on some of the secrets that we have had hints at. Plus we get the intro to some other bad guys, which should certainly have a hand in keeping things moving for Paxton.
