  • A most excellent read!

    By crikey, this series just gets better and better. In my opinion there aren't many trilogies/series that don't tend to 'drop off' just a little, or at least 'plateau' as they progress. Not this one---it just grows more interesting and exciting with each volume. And wowza!--- number four is on it's way!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Exciting third book in the Babel series

    Another great, highly inventive and riveting book in the Babel series. In this book, the main characters are split up: Iren & Voleta as a pair; Senlin and Adam on their own; and Edith with Byron and Reddleman (a resurrected Red Hand). With the exception of Adam (who barely appears), each has their own mission for the Sphinx in the Ringdom of Pelphia: Senlin is to investigate a possible Hod rebellion; Voleta to contact Marya to see if she wants to be rescued, and Edith (as captain of the Sphinx flagship, ‘State of the Art’) to collect the paintings of the Bricklayer’s daughter, and to promote peace under the Sphinx throughout the Tower. Forbidding Senlin to approach Marya or her new husband himself, and expecting Voleta (after the frustrated tutelage of Byron) to act the part of a lady in Pelphian high society, seem to show a major misjudgement of character by the Sphinx. Or maybe the Sphinx has planned on their disobedience. There are some wonderful new characters: the governess Ann Gaucher; and the Watchman Georgine Haste, both of whom one would like to see more of. There is the return of some old ‘favourites’, who you thought to have seen the last of. And we finally find out about the Hod King. There are at least three horrifying cliff hangers, which seem to have no possible positive outcome, to keep you on your toes. The fast paced excitement and ever-present feeling of danger never subsides. A spot of unexpected romance (maybe?). Highly recommended – but you do need to read the preceding books first. On now to Book 4.

    Thanks for your feedback!
