Read in August, 2007

This is the sequel to an earlier book, "The List of 7." I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this 'series.' It was gripping, fast-paced and really drew me in to the world of Jack Sparks and Arthur Conan Doyle.

This latest outing is set in late 1890's America, dancing from New York out to California before settling in Arizona. The plot, while still following the occultic theme of the first book, just didn't grab my attention as much as "7." Because there were so many characters in this book, I felt like they got minimal "screen time," so to speak. They were somewhat shallow.

That said, the story idea was an interesting one, if a little underdeveloped. Also, the ending was crap. I felt like it came to a sudden close and then ... nothing.

I don't think I'll be reading this one again for quite some time, but I will definitely pick up "The List of 7" again.
