About the Author
Gaie Sebold was born in the US to an American father and English mother, and has lived in the UK most of her life. She now resides in that bit of South East London known as 'not as bad as New Cross.' She began writing shortly after learning to read, and has produced a large number of words, many of them different. She has worked as a cleaner (don't laugh, Mum), secretary, till-monkey, stage-tour-manager and editor, and now works for a charity and runs occasional writing workshops. She is an obsessive reader, enthusiastically inefficient gardener and occasional poet. She has a wonderful boyfriend, a paranoid cat and too much stuff. Find out more at www.gaiesebold.com

This is the follow up and one I was very much looking forward to. The problem was always going to be that so many clever ideas had been packed into the first one, that a follow up was always going to be challenging. A warrior brothel owner, who is also a former avatar of a Goddess in a world that sits at the centre of many others....hard act to follow.
In this one Babylon steel is forced into taking a job as a bodyguard to Enthemmerlee (who we met in the first novel) as she takes her place on the council of Incandress, a 'world' on the brink of a racial civil war....
It's good stuff while not hitting the highs of the previous novel, partly because the story takes her away from her 'crew', but she is forced to ask for help that will probably have consequences in future books. But Babylon is a well written and strong female character and the author continues to be inventive, although there are some aspects of the book you need to be somewhat broad-minded for!
So a nice follow up and a series well worth catchin up on. Probably best to read Babylon Steel first though...
Not for anyone looking for wholesome characters due to the profession and attitude of Babylon.
Other than that, a fun read.
You've got a kickass lead heroine who works wonderfully into the genre with her forthright modern thinking as well as the twists that the authors thrown in to give the readers a real grasp of her world. Yes it's dark, there's all sorts of shades of grey but when you add some great twists, jaw jarring combat alongside complex twists that need to be figured out and you've got a brief hold on what she has to offer. Yes, it's no Song of Fire and Ice series but with so many of the brain breaking titles out there you want something that's going to not only hit that fantasy itch but go full on into overkill, then this could well be the author for you. All round a great second novel and one that I'm more than happy to have enjoyed.
