Luna: Wolf Moon

Ian McDonald
Luna: Wolf Moon Cover

Not in the same league as book 1



The biggest fault of this book is a secular version of handwavium. Lucas Corta's machinations and political scheming remain esoteric. He manages to do very big things, but it feels like magic, as we are never explained how. McDonald focuses on the practical results of the cabal wizardry, but as a reader even those results are hard to follow. If the narrative viewpoint had been singular, this would have been justifiable--I don't expect to have auctorial access to everything--but as Lucas is one of the main characters, and what he does is crucial to this book's plot, not explaining seems like a giant cop out.
