I bought this book at a pre release signing, it's a striking book to look at with bright green and black cover, and menacing black pages. Inside it lives up to the expectations. A brother and sister are thrown together in a battle against some nasty pieces of work to to find a flower and in the process discover their past.
The book is a good read, fast paced but detailed enough to put the 'movie' in your head. I can visaulize this on the big screen. The end is reached at high pace, and doesn't fail to deliver.
The only snag, is that I've heard this is the first of 3 books, and finishes rather too nicely, there is no natural (if such a thing is possible with Mortlock) next step to be taken.
I await the next book with interest.
