SPOILER: Why wasn't he killed off? I don't think I would read a sequel, just because of him.
Now a "Mouse" sequel ... Oh yes, I can see buying and loving that. Although I'm certain D. M. Mitchell has plenty of new, and equally great books in his future.
As for the rest of "The King of Terrors", it was well written as always, kept one guessing and engaged. Although missing were any likable characters, no one to truly connect to. They were all rotten, but none as annoyingly so as Gareth.
You know, come to think of it, I might read a sequel ... If Gareth were to die a long and painful death. Ya, that might be worth it. But it would be nice if the book had an endearing someone, maybe a dog or cat, something.
Okay this is a really good story. Some may have problems in that there are many different characters and storylines in this one book. But, you see, because this book tells of what happened in the 1600's up to now, yes, there are many characters. Have patience. As you read on, I would say once you hit 1/4 of the book, the whole thing becomes clear.
The story is written very well. In my opinion, he has got to be a good author to write the different storylines clear enough for us all to understand. The different twists and turns will have you on the edge of your seat for much of this book.
I think the characters in this story are artfully written. They are well detailed as the story goes on. Not sure I can relate to them at this point in life. That would make me a gun toting grandma, and I am surely not that. If you can relate to people fighting for what is right, then this is the book for you.
I do recommend this book. Due to many killings, I would recommend it for adults. But, with teens into video games like they are, might be mature teens would be able to read this book too.
On the plus side, this is a captivating story. Reminiscent of Umberto Eco, Highlander and (better than) Dan Brown, it is well worth reading. The ending is a satisfying finish to this tale whilst leaving room for more... Yes, please, Mr Mitchell, more?
