The latest in the re-released wild card series skips a few generation and puts us in the mid noughties, a new generation of aces with some old friends cameoing must fight the twin evils of extremism and reality t.v (the greatest evil known to modern man).

The format is the same several short stories written by different authors edited by George R.R Martin to create one story, the problem with that the story just doesn't quite fit well this is the start of a bigger story and as such gets swallowed by the need to set the scene and introduce the major players who sadly just are not as good as some from the original trilogy and also the whole making Islam the big evil of the story feels a little bit wrong, this was written post nine eleven bit still it just seems unnecessary.
That said this book still has it's moments and is well worth a read especially if you hate reality t.v or you are a fan of anything that has come before.

Why does George R R Martin collaborate with other writers? Loved Game of Thrones but been disappointed in the other books I have read, which I have bought with his name as the author only to find out others have chipped in. I don't think this works.
