Both of these books are a great mix of Russian fairy tales, Russian politics around the time of the revolution, and science fiction first contact/alien warfare stuff. Mix in with that a serial killer procedural and you have so ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was an excellent sequel to Belarus. I hope he continues the saga in a third book. This universe has much to offer.

This was a great book with all the right elements of suspense, danger, action and a fantastic background based on Russia.

This feels like there should be another book! I mean what about Grigory and Tally and Canopus!

This book was a bit too dry for me. It was a decent read. Not much I remember of it.
