The Saladin Codex is bloody unreadable
Reviewed in the United States on November 7, 2017
Possible spoilers (you've been warned): I don't know how the author, [author:Jonathan Maberry|72451], keeps finding plausible and more evil villains for each subsequent book. The Red Knights ("Ordo Ruber") came out of the Inquisition and the Crusades and were opposed by the Sabbatarians and Arklight. The Upierczi, another name for the Red Knights, brought themselves back from the brink of extinction through genetic engineering.
We learn more about Mr. Church and a possible past love interest, Lilith. We learn more about Father Nicodemus and Hugh Vox.
Joe and Echo Team (Top, Bunny, Lydia, Kahlid, and John) are all there. Ghost, as a trained military dog, gets cuter. "Ghost, the big furry flirt, wagged his tail."
Joe gets a love interest, Violin, a woman as damaged as he is. I am *so* glad that she explicitly reappears at the very end of the book.
