Paul Kearney's follow up to The Mark of Ran, a novel which I found profoundly disappointing - as detailed in my review back in our September 2005 issue. Whether things improve in this sequel (already published in the US by Spectra in November last year) I really couldn't say, and frankly I'm not in a great rush to find out. However in the spirit of fair play, I should add that once again proving how entirely subjective the (so-called) art of book reviewing is - my good friend, highly respected reviewer and genre connoisseur Ariel (once proprietor of the now superseded Alien Online and now guardian of the UK SF Book News network), wrote a rave of The Mark of Ran - so take your pick and be guided as you will.
