Max Barry is good at character development, but the whole premise of the book was not my cup of tea. Despite the plot line assuring the readers that the use of "words" to make people do things is not magic, I don't know what else you could call it. I was waiting for one of the characters to say something that turned someone into a rabbit. If you are not a fan of fantasy, don't buy this book. I want my 12 hours and 36 minutes back.
The first book was really good, but in this one, Kyle Riggs was a little too great. This guy does everything but leap tall buildings.
I doubt that I will read anymore in this series.
