This isn’t a good book to read when you are in a public place. You will find yourself explaining things to the characters when you want them to behave. People around you won’t know why you are yelling at your book and it generally causes a scene. Not that I know this to be true personally or anything.
Also, don’t read this one out of order. If you don’t know what’s happened so far with Avilon, a lot of Edge of Doom will be lost on you.
And finally, when you get to the end, you will want to write a sternly worded memo regarding the general condition and treatment of some of the characters in this book. I am considering taking up a collection to find out where the author lives and explain some things. Poison is not our friend. Torture is bad. Things like that. Maybe we can send Jaz to do it.
This is the middle point in the nine book Fortune’s Fools and we see Durban running things in The City with Jaz as his chief enforcer. I’ve reviewed every book leading up to this and even had the privilege of interacting with a short story that takes place just before book 4 called Doubled Spirit. You can find all the reviews and my Writer Battle with Swift-Hook at LARC-Scifi(dot)com. I only mention this to assure you, the hesitant reader, that this series is worth a whack. I recommend starting at Fated Sky.
I got a free copy of this book. I chose, without obligation, to leave a good review because I like it. One in three books I receive for free never get reviewed because I think they stink. This is not one of them. We never talk about them…
My dad and I listened to book one of the Haruspex Trilogy together via eReader Prestigio on the Bluetooth for my Jeep while road tripping. We made an observation that the character Durban makes in this volume that was so similar I lol’d even though at the time I heard Durban’s line, I was driving around alone. Here it is, “In my experience there is very little that can’t be resolved by communications, good communications.” Easier debated than put into practice, buddy!
It’s an amazing story with many surprises along the way and I could really feel that our MCs are balanced precariously at the Edge of Doom. I especially love the way Avilon progresses through this portion of the storyline as he ‘matures.’ I don’t want to give too much away but believe anyone who loves Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Psychological Thrillers or any other type of Speculative Fiction would find any of E.M. Swift-Hook’s writing more than worthwhile. Highly Recommended.
Again, I find myself hooked on every word, and every action. The author does a good job of holding my attention, and I guess that's why I am such a huge fan of her work. Let's put it this way, I had never considered reading Space Opera's,nor did I want to, but then E.M. Swift-Hook came along and changed all that, and for that I am grateful.
You'll be missing out on this well written story, if you didn't even consider taking a look. I highly recommend it if you are a lover of Space Opera's.
