The Wild Cards universe expands into the Parisian catacombs and wraps up the Leopard Men story from the Committee trilogy. Another child-soldier ace (Darkness) is introduced.

Serviceable. This (post-Committee fallout) is really good story space to explore, but the villains monologue way too much. It's painfully obvious they're talking to the reader rather than the protagonist.

I think without knowing the series, this is a bit hard to understand. But it was interesting and dark and moving all the same.

The ace known as the Darkness* hunts Mama Evernight through the bone-lined catacombs beneath Paris…I might normally make a glib comment about None More Goth, but when the author died the day before publication, it feels more like a presentiment. The author, at that, being Victor Milan, the man who first gave GRRM a superhero RPG, and thus birthed Wild Cards, and without the experience of structuring Wild Cards over so many years, who knows if the epic history of Westeros would ever have come abo ...more

I really liked the ideas in this story - creepy Paris catacombs and dangerous mutants, wary alliances, and kickass fights! Unfortunately the writing (as in, the grammar and sentence structure) were often confusing and would disrupt my momentum as I paused to puzzle out meaning. So, all in all 3 stars, but well worth an hour or so of your time if you like the Wild Cards world.

A good read, from the newly deceased Victor Milan, but, in its first half at least, difficult too follow - too many personalities, groups, places, I lost track. That said, an excellent stylistic nod to series curator George R.R. Martin.

A short story rather than a novel, but nicely realized with plenty of atmosphere & good continuity for the Wild Card universe.
