Payback's a bitch.,
This review is from: Angels of Vengeance (Hardcover)
Part 3 in the "Without warning" trilogy. We follow three female protagonists on missions of vengeance, hence the title.
As always with Birmingham, the action is tense, bloody and decisive. He manages to create believable characters, often at odds with each other, each with his or her own justifications and agendas that seem reasonable enough when seen from their points of view.
What started out as a globe-encompassing story in "Without warning" has ended up, through "After America", as a story of personal (and in one case petty) vendettas. Characters from book one resurface, complete with their own backstories.
Without giving too much away, the book ends on a satisfying note but....
SPOILER WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! READ NO FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY READ THE BOOKS!
Why do we never get an explanation of what the energy wave that laid waste to North America was?
