A fellow Buroker-fan told me that the more I read of this series, the more I'm going to enjoy this and the more action I'm going to get. She was not mistaken as I seem to like each book more. Although I do have to say that I may prefer Sardelle with her silly name to Cas, but I adore both the crazy evil scientist Tolemek and the a bit loony pilot Ridge. Why can't we have all four POV-s at once?
Action-wise this book starts right where the previous book ended and is full of even more action than the previous books in the series. And guess what? I liked it a lot! As with the previous stories, the laugh out loud worthy banter makes it all even better. Example:
“Just don’t get close to the body,” Zirkander said. “We’re leaving that for Tolemek.”
“Really,” he[Tolemek] said.
“Don’t you want to get your microscope out and look at some brain bits?”
“Brain bits, Zirkander? How is it your people consider you a national hero?”
“We have low standards for heroism in Iskandia.”
I may not have been a fan of the insecurities Tolemek and Cas felt towards their relationship as they seemed so badass otherwise, BUT I felt that the book simply flew by and, of course, left me wanting more of this world. Which I am going to do ASAP, of course.
