Best one yet?

It’s a crazy thought but I think this is my favorite book of the series. Of course, that would mean that both book 1 and book 3 are in my top 10 list of all time. Book 2 was so satisfying to have answers from book 1. This one rises from off the shoulders of those two books. T.Ryder Smith seems more involved in this one, too. A really excellent job by him.

Audacity if Ideas

Still high from Ada Palmer induced euphoria, which T Ryder Smith helped to elevated to potent level! Now I need a way to calm down.

The Insanity of Anonymous

I felt the book's title was a misnomer. While battle - at least in the eyes of those surrounded by a perpetual peace was a factor in the story, I felt war played a light part. Mycroft's vulnerability - the visions - the crying - the vomiting over small things were hard to read. He always seemed so strong and wise. His deterioration added a flavor to the narration - as if his descent into madness was a physical representation of the world he lived in.

Four books in and I still don't know what side is truly wrong. Although If I was born in the times depicted I would proudly be displaying a bullseye above my heart.

Disappointed

At the end of book two we were left hanging with a world on the brink of war.... Book three didn't move the plot along much. It's still entertaining, and well written. I just feel like my time was wasted.
