Book of Transformations - Mark Charan Newton - book 3 of 4.
What a fantastic book. I'll sum up my review. BUY THIS BOOK :)
That was easy. The book can be read as a standalone novel, as with the previous couple of books he has slightly changed his style, In this book and we are back in the stunning city of Villjamur the site of the first book in the series. The city is surrounded by refugees, Emperor Urtica has now taken over control of the city and is determined to hold on to it come hell or high water. The big freeze is inching closer and the world is holding it's breath.
The city has all sorts of problems the refugees outside, and the oppressed minorities within the city who have a strange rebel leader. So what can the slightly mad emporer come up with... Obvious of course! Create a group of superheroes to save the city. How could anything go wrong with that idea.
So he gets an old ex hero, a self indulgent weener, and a seriously sexy kick arse transsexual together and improves them to save the city.
We have a bit of a mad monk arrive around now, who among other things seems to have the ability to bring the dead back as ghosts....
Nothing can go wrong with Urtica's plans ;)
The slight fly in the ointment is the scary group of cultists marching back to the city to pass on some ultimatum from alien Invaders. Well by now the title really really becomes accurate and everything around the city is transforming.
Then chaos is let loose within the city, grab this book and find out what happens.
I've reviewed this for another site and said it's the best book / new series / new author that I have read in a very long time. The writing and pace of the book is fantastic. Your never quite sure what is going to happen next.
If there is one author you must add this year to your list of must have authors make it Mark Charan Newton.
