Pretty different to the previous books, a good read though!,

This review is from: In the Mouth of the Whale (Quiet War Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
In the Mouth of the Whale is very different to The Quiet War and Gardens of the Sun, but that's important: while the book still focuses on a number of characters and their stories, the world is painted in broad strokes compared to the fine detail of the previous books, which is a smart move since it deals with a much more distant future where the technology is notably less distinguishable from magic.
The book is compelling; it consists of three stories (two of which don't rely on having read the first two books in the series, one of which is much better for having read them), and jumps between them in a way guaranteed to force you to keep reading to find out what happens next.
