    Good overall story arc poor implementation

    Following on from the unsatisfactory cliff-hanger ending of the first book in this series, McDonald continues the epic conflicts of the Lunar ‘Dragons’ – the dynastic families that control the Moon. Lucas Corta is determined to get his revenge on the Mackenzies after their defeat and all but annihilation of the Corta dynasty. He seeks the backing of the Earth authorities, who fear an independent Moon, and the Vorontsovs who control all space commerce between Earth and Moon. Wolf Moon is not an easy book to review; on the one hand the overall story arc is both intriguing and compelling but on the other the implementation again leaves much to be desired. The writing often felt sloppy with big holes that needed at least some filling and other parts that were over filled with unnecessary detail. And McDonald’s apparent obsession with fashion still irritated me throughout with passages like: “Not for Lady Sun 1980s retro. She wears a faux-wool day suit from 1935, skirt to below the knee, wide-lapelled hip-length jacket, single button. Fedora, wide band. Classic style is never out of fashion.” Occasional passages like this may add colour but almost every character entrance seems to be introduced with similar verbose descriptions. Whilst they’re easy enough to skip that doesn’t make them any the less irritating. At least this particular one left out the needless designer labelling that McDonald so often includes. About the only improvement on the writing of the previous volume is that at least this one has a better, more complete ending, rather than just cutting off with all the major characters being left in various dangerous limbos as the previous book did. Add to that frequent examples of extremely poor copy editing and I’m left wondering whether the greater story arc is worth the effort and with the next book probably a year away I sadly suspect that by then I’ll be even less inclined to make that effort.
