5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read., 21 Sep 2014
This is a fantastic novel. Funny, riveting and epic in scope although not actually all that long. From the first page you are pulled in and teased with hints of what is to come. Hard to put down as you want to discover who these people are as the narrator casually tosses in their nicknames; When you do find out it doesn't disappoint. The only bad thing about this book is that it isn't longer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 21 Sep 2014
I loved the first novel, this sequel was a disappointment. It reads badly, it felt like reading a history text book at times. Major events feel skimmed, almost summarised. You never feel like you're in the sceen or situation and there is miniaml dialogue. All this is a real shame as I'd wanted to read more after the first one. I couldn't actually finish this, I was bored.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 15 Jun 2014
A really nice hard cover. Has an almost velvety feel, and a decent amount of grip so it doesn't slip through your fingers. Great colour, almost metallic red. I also have it in blue.
