As with prophet of bones, the prologue is great but then it seems to disconnect with the rest of the story... therefore the motivation and development of a key character and an essential story element is almost non existent... kosmatska could have made more of this I think.
Its crying out for a sequel and who knows... there could just be one... here's hoping!
Its work like this that makes me say to myself "I wish I had written this!" so heres even more drive for me to crack on with my own masterpiece ahem.
Very frustrated his next book is not out for five or six weeks... what am I going to read round the pool on my last day of the holiday!
The story takes place in the near future USA, where science and finance are fuelled by public desire. The reader needs an open mind, but your reviewer thoroughly bought into it; no recent book has had me rushing to pick up my Kindle, or idly considering the plotline at other times. The story is mostly plausible, and involves just two parallel threads, reaching a dramatic climax after an ever-increasing pace from the first page.
Quite simply, I loved it.
