I almost didn't buy this one since I wasn't too satisfied with Dead or Alive. But with a different author in play I gave it a shot and enjoyed the story. It'll keep me coming back to the next one although I'll miss the characters I grew up with as the approach getting put out to pasture.
I don't get what the excitement was about with this book. Given that I'm a guy in my 40s I'm not what the author had in mind for her target audience. There's just way too many holes in the world that she tries to create and you REALLY have to suspend belief just to get through it. There's virtually no discussion about how Chicago became the center of the society and it's hard to believe there's no influence from others who live outside the area. And while the faction concept is interesting, anyone with a basic understanding of human nature will see that this societal design wouldn't exist in the "real" world.
Perhaps the author is expecting all of the young adults to just be naive and not ask too many questions but for me this book was uneventful and even absurd.
it had to end. I wish The Iron Druid installments were twice as long. These books go by way too fast! Now I have to figure out what to do until Hearne finishes "Trapped". Bummer.
