If you plan on reading this book, I would highly recommend reading the first to get the background on Caitlin Diggs beforehand. It will save you the trouble of trying to understand what her place is in the organization we know as the FBI, and how her abilities developed. Overall, I enjoyed the read, and would pass this on to others. Well done Mr. Gary Starta!
She, her partner Deondra (a Hallee Berry look-alike), her psychic cat Celeste and her sister Tara are the main characters in a cast of fascinating characters that also includes the purple robed Master, the black suited Apprentice, DNA bound potions that provoke rage, lust, truth and are used not only with an intent to bring on End Times but to counter the villains, the prime villan being the deceased, evil magician Aleister Crowley who has entered and possessed the body of a high government official, looking to destroy humanity in order to initiate his own ascension to the realm of the gods.
Highly imaginative and very entertaining. Highly recommended.
Lots of backstory and thoughtful character analysis—appropriate in an investigator I suppose—brings readers up to speed on earlier events and relationships, leaving them ready to learn more (especially about the cat). Meanwhile nicely changing viewpoints offer a chance to see what’s behind the scenes (again, especially with the cat—I love the chapter told from the cat's point of view).
When Caitlin’s visions start, the story simultaneously speeds up and slows down, allowing space for intriguing self-analysis, and lots of suspicion of evil in high places. Meanwhile evil from an ancient place stalks the protagonist, casting doubt on everything she knows, and suspicion on friends and foes.
A “red thread of destiny” offers protection, while a mysterious robe brings threat. Long passages of complex introspection offer a way through both deceits. And a slightly odd mathematics “weaves ethereal and material dimensions together.” Some strange word-choices combined with careful self-analysis to slow the story down. But fast action speed it up again, while hints of Stargate’s ancients blend with higher consciousness and “fourth dimensional” ascent, and the fate of the world might hang on the distinction between vision and dream.
Extreme Liquidation was a slower read than I expected, but it blends great characters with lots of intriguing ideas, and it tells a nicely complete story, making it a good introduction to the author’s Caitlin Diggs series.
Disclosure: I met the author online and was pleased to find a free ecopy of this book.
