SYNOPSIS: Yesterday’s crime. Tomorrow’s retribution.
The Amazon best-selling series continues!
In the second book of the best-selling Pearseus series, the incessant scheming of the various players and their nebulous puppet-masters has brought about major change. Cyrus is now the new ruler of the Capital, struggling to fight Jonia’s revolt along with his own demons. Gella strives to keep abreast of Teo’s devious plans in order to end the war with Jonia. David returns to the First in an effort to overcome his loss of the Voice. Lehmor’s struggle to reunite with Moirah brings him to uncharted territories, where the enigmatic Iota play with minds, senses and the future of the entire planet.
Old foes and unlikely new friends appear as invisible forces continue to tear humanity apart. Masks drop to reveal the ultimate truth: on Pearseus, everyone has their own agenda. And they’ll stop at nothing to achieve it.
REVIEW: When I read the first book of Pearseus, I did get lost in more than a couple of places, and I half expected the same in this second instalment of the series. I love it when an author proves wrong like this!
I found Mad Water much more alluring. We still have the same contesting factions with the Iotas, Orbs, and Whispers all playing their games with the descendants of Perseus as they pull them in a seemingly endless tug-of-war for ultimate control. However a lot which still remained a mystery in book one is finally uncovered, and it’s not like in some mysteries where revelations are somewhat disappointing; they pull you in even deeper. The story is not an easy read, There is so much depth to this story with so much going on, I have to wonder where Nicholas comes up with this stuff! The best part is the unpredictability of it all… I can’t wait to read book three!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review… Five stars!
