Hey that hurts
on 6 May 2005
Each Bowler novel lives in the grey border between hard-edged realism and plausible fantasy and Apocalypse is no different. Passages of this book are among the most powerful he has ever written and they hit home like bare knuckles - pain everywhere. While not as emotionally satisfying as his previous novel, Starseeker, there is still loads to admire and the page-turning narrative really keeps things pumping along. It's a gritty read though so if you're of a nervous disposition you might be better off with Abigail the Breezy Fairy.
