Mack, who featured in the story Temple of Camazotz, is a cross between Indiana Jones and Fox Mulder: he's an athletic adventurer cum conspiracy theorist who lives alone in the desert and acts as a clearing house for information about the paranormal. Rebecca York's past is a bit more mysterious, but while Mack learns about the mysteries of the world, she immerses herself in them, and is an adept magic user.
Despite the fantasy elements, the novel is set very squarely in the real world, with the problems of the Middle East as its backdrop. Wilson manages a clever twist, taking a familiar tale from the Bible and turning it around in the modern day. The story is fast-paced and suspenseful, with enough surprises to keep me guessing all the way to the end.
If there's one area of weakness, it's the characterization. Most of the characters feel like collections of character traits than fully-developed individuals. We know what Mack and York (and the villains and supporting characters) can do, but not who they are. Hopefully, that will change as the series goes on, although the multi-author nature of the series might work against that. Ultimately, that's what will distinguish this series from countless other paranormal investigation/adventure series. Time will tell, I suppose.
Fortunately, as an ebook series, reading future installments doesn't represent a huge investment on my part. So I'm willing to give the series time to find itself. While not perfect, this was still an entertaining read, and certainly worth my time.
A fast-paced, clever, page-turner that keeps you guessing and constantly engages your sense of wonder. What if magical weapons older than the bible were deployed in modern warfare? With a smidgeon of Dan Brown, a pinch of Indiana Jones, 1001 Arabian Nights, and nod to the Old Testament, David Niall Wilson's curious alchemy provides a fun, original book full of interesting characters and ideas. Sure-fire entertainment and -- I hope -- the start of a great new series.
