5.0 out of 5 stars It's no Secret how great this book is., 31 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Secret of Abdu El Yezdi: The Burton & Swinburne Adventures (Burton & Swinburne 4) (Hardcover)
The only problem with the Mountains of the Moon was I wasn't sure where Hodder was going to be able to go from there. With The Secret of Abdu El-Yezdi, he showed us where, or whereS with a capital "S". There is no end to the amount of adventures the intrepid adventurer and his De Sade devotee sidekick can go.

And this, the first in the continuing adventures, packed a lot of possibilities into the punch. Most of the characters you've come to know and love and even revile are here in this ever changing tempestuous temporal tale. I never like to just spout off the plot in a review, you can read a synopsis elsewhere. What I want to get across is the sheer genius of Hodder's storytelling and his mastery of the time travel element. We, as the reader, are left knowing more than Burton as the story begins and from our omniscient point of reference we can see just how convoluted is the time stream. Reference is made to the other stories where needed to refresh our memories and the whole story flows in an organic and satisfying direction.

Needless to say I loved this latest installment as much, if not more, than the others, because I can see the future unfurling for Burton and Swinburne.
