In Any Other Name, the story from Between Two Thorns (Book 1) continues - with most events moving to London/Londinium.
Max and Ekstrand continue to investigate what happened to their organization in Bath. The Rosa's might be down - but they're not completely out just yet. Sam takes on a more prominent (If maybe not very sensible!) role in events.
Roll up, It's book 2 - and the horses pulling this carriage aren't showing any signs of slowing down just yet!
This is a gripping (although trying at times) read. Make sure you read Book 1 (Between Two Thorns) first!
With a shift of focus away from the Nether version of Bath to the one of London, mysteries surrounding the intentions of the Fae, the sorcerers and the Agency plus an intriguing new player only hinted at before, the pace of events and the stakes for the characters have increased which seems to have had the knock-on effect of me racing through this in under a week and starting book three immediately afterwards.
There's still some aspects of the Regency society of the Nether that aren't to my taste and I've flipped back and forth between loathing and rooting for Will, but with the conflicting agendas and machinations of the various sides, a willingness to kill off some characters and a wealth of plot threads left to resolve it's no wonder I've leapt straight into All Is Fair.
So, time for some cake and a cup of tea then right back to see how this all ends.
It is unusual for me to feel regret when my train pulls into my station after work and I have to put my kindle away. It is even more rare for me to simply HAVE to finish a book at home before I could possible sleep. That's what this book did to me.
From an uninspiring first book this book turns a corner into a book that kept me on edge throughout. Seething internally at the characters, feeling amazing joy and crushing hopelessness all int eh space of a few pages.
I'm so excited to read the third now I'm having to persuade myself that sleep is unfortunately more of a priority!
If you enjoyed Between Two Thorns you'll be far from disappointed with the sequel. It's the same gorgeous worlds, the same politics and the same intrigue but bigger, better and with a hint of added spice. Once again, whatever you think of characters going in to the book you're certain to have revised those opinions a dozen times over before you get to the end - which, by the way, made me swear out loud like a Game of Thrones wedding!
A superb sequel. And I still want my own gargoyle.
The writing and story telling was fantastic, and as with the first book Between Two Thorns there was lots of intrugue and mystery. The characters are very well developed and likeable, although some are still very creepy like Lord Poppy and now we've met him, Lord Iris. I'm still loving the gargoyle, who brings some comic relief to the series.
I'm not going to comment on the story itself, i'll leave it for you to find out what happens, but if you love urban fantasy then this book and the whole series will be right up your street.
