Well, this is a departure from other John Connolly books that I have read. Amazon list it as Teen Fiction, not sure why, this is a novel for all to read. As with all of Connolly's books, the characters are well defined and logically introduced. Again the gradual escalation of the story action is superbly done, such that I found it hard to out my tablet reader down. I devoured this in a couple of days and then felt peeved that I couldn't instantly buy the next in the series.
The story even begs for a prequel, let alone the projected sequel and I do hope Amazon is geared up to notify everyone who bought this 1st book, when the next is released!
I couldn't help but also visualise this as a film and I hope the authors agents are trotting it around Hollywood, as this will make a GREAT movie. Sell it to Peter Jackson, he would make those little chewy flies in the suit really make your eyes pop!
Great story. If you like SciFi with a good (and logical story line) grab this book!
