Be My Enemy - Ian McDonald


Some of the novelty of McDonald's concepts has worn of in this book of course, but all things considered Be My Enemy is a very strong sequel to Planesrunner. McDonald doesn't feel the need to hold the reader's hand in his adult fiction and he certainly doesn't do so here. In my opinion that is something books for teens could use more of. There is a respect of the reader's intelligence in these novels that makes them attractive for geeks of all ages. I hope to see a new McDonald for adult audiences again soon, but I will keep an eye out for the third volume of the Everness series as well.
