As mentioned in a previous review, i don't feel that we have been allowed to get to know the main characters well enough to understand their feelings and motivations. However, (and this is a big but) The Church of Virtual Saints brings us a little closer. I can't tell you why I like Dan, and to be honest, I probably shouldn't after the first book, but I do. There is still a slight coldness to the author's approach to his characters, but it's beginning to become quite charming. In fact, I found myself beginning to worry about what will happen to them in the next instalment.
That said, the concept of this story is incredibly well thought out and in no way under-delivered. My only issue is that it still reads with a large amount of technical jargon and terminology, which (and I hope he'll forgive me for saying so) may hinder some readers' enjoyment of what is a fantastic plot.
If I had to categorise this series, I'd be tempted to say that Mr Brookes has invented a whole new sub-genre called Geek-lit, which is in no way intended as a slight. Being a full on computer addict myself, and knowing many, many other avid readers who would love the style of this series, I'd be happy to recommend it to them. But be warned, if you're not so hot on the programming world, you might find the details a little tough to chew.
Would I recommend this book? As stated above, Hell yes - to the right sort of person. If you're not a geek like me, persevere with the workings of the virtual world and enjoy The Church of Virtual Saints for what it is - the second book in what I'm certain will be a successful and well received series.
Another solid 4*s well deserved!
The church of Virtual Saints is basically a weird concept of immortality but immortality has fascinated earth populaces since the beginning of times so, it is also a virtual way in gaining it, you could say it is the I.T equivalent of the elixir of life brewed by a mad scientist.
The story once again revolves around Sarah Mitchell, Dan Emmett and the ever enigmatic Morton, though this time, we find him to be more human, more approachable. Again, there is a race against time but this time, Dan turns his hacking skills into being a knight in virtual armour to save Sarah. The only problem, when Sarah realises she wants to live, there are only a few seconds left before the end of her existence. So, will Dan be able to save her?
And in what form?
Dan in this book is the real surprise. He become almost likeable.
My overdue review :
Misty Felice has been destroyed but she still had time to orchestrate a few nasty surprises for Dan and Sarah. Now, her threat is gone but something more sinister lurks around in the virtual world.
Warning: The book starts with a quite disturbing and violent prison scene. Not really for the delicate reader, so, you are warned.

Just a little, do not get your hopes high to see his compassionate nature, because you won't. Again, there is a race against time but this time, Dan turns his hacking skills into being a knight in virtual armour to save Sarah. Dan in this book is the real surprise. He become almost likeable. Again, I say ''almost.''

And in what form?
I have enjoyed this book. I am a total disaster when it comes to computers but this time, the techno side was cleverly disguised within the exchange between Sarah and Adam Samuels. You do have to read slowly though at times, if, like me, you do not know anything in computer but I think it is all plausible.
The reader might need to read first Faust 2.0 Faust 2.0: Volume 1 (Mitchell and Morton) in order to get the full essence of The Church of Virtual Saints. Yes, some background story is given all along the book but it might not be enough. I re-read Faust 2.0 before so, for me, it was no problem. I got immersed into the story straight away.
I am also sure there will be a Morton and Mitchell 3. I just hope I will not have to wait another 3 years for it...
