Ms. Levene managed to write a book here that is an equal mix of supernatural and spy noir. There are many twists and turns here. I thought I had figured everything out, but I hadn't even discerned the tip of the iceberg. The whole storyline that seemed to be apparent turned into something even more sinister. I liked how tense the narrative was. Ms. Levene writes tautly, like a spy thriller, and the well-executed, horrifying supernatural elements pricked me into another level of unease. This stor ...more

“You died twenty years ago. Welcome back…“

Over the last couple of years, I have become a fan of the publisher Abaddon Books and have taken the opportunity to read as many of their ongoing series as I can get my hands on. I enjoy The Afterblight Chronicles, and Pax Britannia has become a personal favourite (more on that in the next review). I recently picked up the first book in another series called The Infernal Game.

I really enjoyed this book. I won't go into a huge synopsis because that is on the back of it or on one of the bookseller sites. I am very surprised that this book has not gotten more of a following.

I will say that there are some serious surprises. The character developm ...more

Again, some great pulp fiction. Most impressive is that Ms. Levene avoids my common gripe of "too much exposition." She really tries to show, not tell. The plot is gripping, the characters well-developed and sympathetic, and the fantastical elements are not addressed matter-of-factly (so that they are not over-the-top and corny/goofy). This is the second book that I've read (and loved) from this publisher - I can't wait to read more.
