1.0 out of 5 stars Really bad, 9 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Red Plague Affair: Bannon and Clare: Book Two (Paperback)
Second book in the Bannon and Clare series. Even if it is a light entertainment read it had really nothing worth reading. I sort of like the author's original prose when there are not too many ellipses.The plot is slow and twisted. Characters are devoid of any personality when in my opinion a second book should develop them and unfold secrets. They are utterly apathetic. Little happens and when it does the pace is really really slow. There is also a bit of confusion with a couple of foreign words that made me cringe: in Italian the masculine adjective bastard ends with an 'O' not with an 'E', and if Ludo comes from Naples he is a Campano not a Calabrese. I lightly enjoyed the first book for what it was; this one is just a big question mark. There is much better around for fans of SP/alt-hist and the like (by authors with less cheesy names too!).
