This review is from: DANNY 2.2 - Eilean Mhor (The DANNY Quadrilogy) (Kindle Edition)
Danny 2.2 Eilean Mhor, the third part of the Danny Quadrilogy, is my favorite installment so far. There's finally a bit of peace and happiness for Danny on this small island in Scotland. Unfortunately it comes so early in the novel that you fear it cannot be the happy ending you craved. And indeed, new characters intrude, igniting Danny's spectacular needs with their desires. Again we find ourselves spun round and round on the merry carousel of betrayal, mistrust, jealousy, violence and dark passion.
Harry Greaves forces Danny's return home to the farm, adding to his troubles. Greaves becomes more obsessed and repulsive at every turn, eventually hunting Danny down in London, where their conflict escalades.
A difficult novel to talk about without giving too much away, this installment proves how carefully the whole series is plotted, as baffling events and dialogue from the first Danny novel finally make perfect sense. This is the book where I began to develop my own theories on Danny and his behaviors and motivations, as pieces of his past and present suddenly fit together to provide a larger picture. Danny 2.2 ends once in such a way that you itch to get your hands and the next one. My advice: indulge!
