Darker than first book
on 20 April 2009
If you liked the X-com series games, the complex plot in the games and the thrilling action behind them, the Epic series is for you. In this serie of books no one knows why the aliens are attacking earth. Goverments only know that they should be repelled at all costs, and the story is developing through one man, one soldier, a recruit in the first book but a veteran in this second book.
In this book the plot deepens in the Night Men sect and in the reasons for the aliens to attack earth.
The plot is darker than in the first book, but it is still ok. Some can be disappointed by the gradual transformation of the main character. Do not expect a surprise ending. Some points will be clarified in this book but most will be for the next books.
I still recommend it, but I must admit that is furstrating because it is way too short, and the next book is not even written... Hope the next arrives soon.
Conclusion: The first book is better, but this is still ok.
