Bravo, just bravo!
Better in every way than the brilliant predecessor One Word Kill, Limited Wish packs a whale of a shallow in 220 or so pages.
More D&D, more Nick, Simon, Sam, and Mia? Tightly wound, swiftly paced, and yet still able to weave in a few new characters (Eva! Helen!) and thrill with timelines and multiverse string theory? Yes.
Already on my instant purchase list, Mark Lawrence’s trilogy (of which this is book two) of “tapas” sized pseudo-sci-fi/fantasy is just the right type of awesome for a late Spring/early Summer books. I dare say- and I mean and I hope it’s implied positively as such- that this trilogy, and Limited Wish in particular, takes me back to some of the best Michael Crichton works: A taste of technology, a plausible scientific basis, relatable characters and brisk pace.
I love Mark Lawrence grim dark works and worlds, and this book is nothing like them with one key Exception: it’s inimitably readable.
Bravo! Bring on Book 3!
