Reads like a fanfic, which is essentially what it is. Not bad, not good--it simply is. Plot is pretty standard X-Men fare.
I read the Mutant Empire novels in one combined book.

In Sanctuary, Magneto has gathered numerous mutants in Manhatten and taken it over as his own empire.

With half the X-Men on another mission and X-Factor out of the loop, it is up to a few X-Men to try to stop Magneto on their own.

As with the first book in this series, Sanctuary was well-written and is not as immature as one might expect from a novel written from a comic book series.
A really good sequel, can't wait for the last installment! But like the first one, I had to pause in order to look up some of the characters I was unfamiliar with.

If you care enough to pay close attention to the dates I've started/finished this book, you'll see that it took me quite some time. Longer than it normally takes me, at least. That typically means that I dislike the book in some way and it's causing me to take forever to finish. However, in this case, I got side tracked by different graphic novels and other things, so the length of this read has no bearing on my opinion. Just thought I should clear that up.

That being said, this book was pretty r

Book 2 of the "Mutant Empire" series continues from where we left off in "Siege". Storm and Wolverine and their team are sneaking into Manhattan to try to stop Magneto, their old foe.

Cyclops and Jean Grey and their team are stranded in space---attempting to return to Earth on the Starjammers' ship.

Again, Christopher Golden alternates between the two groups of X-men to follow up the action in "Siege" and set us up for the conclusion in Book 3.

So we do get a lot of action and interesting plot twis
