Having read The Boy from Reactor Four, I was compelled to read the follow up. It was a decent holiday read and followed on well from the first book. The side-kick brother was a bit of a convenient plot device but just about tolerable.

What I found most intriguing was the insight into Ukrainian history and tension with Russia, given that I read this when these tensions were heightened again. It added a contemporary relevancy that made the book not only decent fiction, but also documentary.

After reading Orest Steimach's first novel I had been looking forward to his next book. And ok I don't think it is as good as the first one but I think it may be because I had never read anything so unique as the first novel. If you have never read The Boy From Reactor 4, you really must.

Orest Steimach introduces you to a world that we don't know and wouldn't want to know - the dark world of eastern Europe. His characters are full and rounded and you care what happens to them, even the 'bad guys'. I loved following Nadia (the heroine) from New York to Ukraine. The descriptions of Chernobyl and the surrounding area made me think what it must have been like for the people who lived there. I will definitely read book number 3 which I am sure will follow

This is the second book in a trilogy that you just cannot put down. You just want to know what is coming next While each book can be read individually, I recommend that you read the three in order commencing with the first book "The Boy from Reactor 4" as this initial book in the trilogy sets the scene and introduces you to the main characters. Reading this will then make the subsequent books easier to focus on the next stage of the adventure, the additional characters and their roles within the story. My only criticism is that after reading three thoroughly good reads and getting to know the characters I would now like to see subsequent books in the series..
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the trilogy.

This is the second book in the series of three and I really like the way that some of the same characters keep turning up. Twists and turns abound and don't disappoint. And the difficulties that the Ukraine and Russia are currently undergoing make these stories even more poignant. And exciting. Don't forget exciting.

I did. not enjoy this book. More and more characters were introduced making it very confusing and it was an attempt at Janes Bond type stuff that I do not
Ike anyway. I was. very. glad when I finally got to the end of it. It went on far too long.

Initially I was a bit put off because I'm not really a fan of "action" books/movies however well written. However, as Nadia's character was revealed a bit more as well as some of those she came in contact with I became much more interested. I was intrigued enough to want to pursue her story into the next book. I wound up really enjoying it.

Couldn't wait to read this one and wasn't disappointed. Followed same format as first book in the series, needed to follow each character and remember where they were. Introduction of a new character - the Russian business man , space for development there. Hoping for another book in the series soon!

For me the story line was thin and lacked the pace of The Boy From Reactor 4. However I will carry on and read the sequel, the basis of which was set up at the end of this story.
I think any reader should read the series in order.
