The Claw of the Conciliator


The second book in a series of four carries on where the first left off and it is more of the same. Strang things happening and some pretty challenging reading.

I enjoyed the opening with the person trapped in the building and also really enjoyed the section that went into the cave and underground. We meet more characters but it is all mysterious and require s books three and four to try to comprehend and even then I believe I will have to re-read it at some time to fully understand.

Highly creative and written in a way it is hard to describe, can see why it is so highly thought of.

If you want a challenge this is as good as they come and this is only part two so another two to read.
