Another fantastic novel written by Harry Connolly. This book somehow managed to be extremely riveting, even though it only takes place within a few days and in a small town. Game of Cages somehow managed to take all of the shock factor and amount of deaths from the previous book, and amplified it by 100. So much happens in the last half of this book that it makes up for the slowness of the first half. Understandably, it was building up to the ending, and what an ending. After finishing reading a certain chapter in which Harry literally fights with everything he has to survive, you're somehow left feeling utterly exhausted. Connolly's exceptional writing excels in this section of the book. When a couple of pages are devoted to one long stream-of-conscious paragraph, he really manages to suck you into Ray Lily's predicament. You understand what's going on in his head, what he's feeling, and at that moment, you understand it all. Quite possibly my favorite book in this entire series.
