All around pretty awesome. The plot was excellent and hooked you from the get go - you're trying to figure out what the hell is going on with the Imperium v. Grimnoir, how the world has changed with the advent of Actives, and how the deliciously creepy Pale Horse fits into all of this. The way this book dealt with superpowers and their origin was different and I appreciated that. It also sets up the next two books very nicely, because you are now waiting for that other, horrifying, world ending thing to show up. If I had to mention any one thing that sets Correia apart from other authors of his ilk, it is that this man lives and breathes fight scenes. Some of the best I've ever read take place in this book, and the ending fight scene in the dirigible is sick. So I can't wait to see the showdown that's going to take place between the nameless horror and the Grimnoir.
