Swords Of Babylon
on 29 October 2013
Three stars for the new Matt Drake, would have been more but it now seems this guy is a walking disaster area!
This book returns to familiar characters, both 'good' and 'bad', which is nice for continuity, but gets a bit weary. Fast paced as usual, laced with humour, this all takes place within hours of their last great adventure, and over the next couple of weeks another mystery unravels.
I know its fiction, and its lighthearted, but goodness me, he has now only just got rid of the Shadow Elite, but Mai is in trouble and the Blood King is about to return!!
I know that book 8 is due to include more on Coyote, I just wonder if Matt Drake 10 will ever appear, cos if it does he certainly has more lives than any cat in fiction!
