John Connolly remains one of my favorite authors even after all these years and 19 books in this series alone. Charlie Parker, Angel and Louis are among my favorite characters of all time, and this is me trying NOT to gush!
I’m keeping my review brief today, even though it’s way late. This volume remains focused on Angel and Louis, which was just fine with me. Angel is still recovering from his health issues, but he IS recovering. Charlie Parker makes an appearance or two, but that’s it. I think we see more of his daughter than we do of him.
Angel and Louis set out to Belgrade, Serbia, to France, and to a few other locations as well, to do what they do. The Fulci brothers make an appearance back in Maine and end up saving the day. As a side note, I learned a bit about the break up of Yugoslavia and some of the atrocities that occurred during the war in the 90’s. I had no idea that some of them mimicked the horrors of WWII which saddened and disgusted me. A few new characters were introduced and as always with this series, you never know which ones might show up again in future books.
I was entertained, never bored, and at times fearful for my friends. I can’t wait for the next book!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the e-ARC in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it.
