Fast paced, this is a war story more than the last two instalments, like the last two, set in the same view with a different protagonist’s viewpoint, we now experience the world from Harlequin the aeromancer.
Publically Harlequin is the poster boy for the US government, propping up the new President’s regime & latency laws (laws about people who manifest magical powers). Privately he’s been promoted to side line him & to punish him for bring down the previous president to rescue the 30,000 trapped servicemen in the Source.
The best laid plans fall through pretty much straight away, as Scylla launches a full scale invasion of Manhattan. Harlequin is the only available senior mage available to lead the defence.
Set only in New York, with only a few short pages in the Source this time the story is over far too quickly. It was a superb fun read, clearly concluding the series, I really hope Myke Cole writes more set in the same universe
The book is almost pure action, focusing on one big battle, but there's enough of a cast keeping busy in enough places to maintain the reader's interest, while interjecting here and there with a powerful backstory on the trilogy's main antagonist - Scylla. In fact, it's the backstory that really made this book for me.
There is no black and white in 'Breach Zone'. Even using the word 'villain' sounds problematic here. Beyond her devastating magical ability, Scylla hadn't made much of an impression on me in the fist two books. But now Cole gives us the woman she was before she turned up Latent, and the tragic web of events that created the eventual monster. It was almost hard to read because I expected Scylla to lose, but her reasoning was so understandable. All you want is peace for her.
A lot of reviewers for Book I of the trilogy really didn't like Oscar Britton, and I urge those people to give the other books a go - Britton shares the stage with Bookbinder (my favourite 'good guy') in Book II, and in Book III, he pretty much takes a back-seat till near the end. Harlequin takes centre stage in 'Breach Zone', and he's more than capable of carrying the book.
Great characters wouldn't mean much if the actual writing and the setting weren't good, but there are no problems in this regard. Cole's world(s) are crazily inventive, an LSD mix of mythical creatures, magic and human technology. I'm assuming the giant spiders are a tribute to Tolkien.Read more ›
I only read it at weekends and the whole week without it, it was in my thoughts.
Great books, the action sequences were good enough to draw me in and the characters were excellent.
I recommend this book if you fancy a break from scifi but don't want to go in to full on fantasy mode

Oh. My. Word.
I've long since loved this series, and quailed at the prospect of it coming to an end. However, if it had to end - it ends in style. Read more
