really liked it

Oddly inspired to re-read this after watching a few minutes of the craptacular Terra Nova and thinking "this seems familiar..." Attempting to read it the first time between China Mieville's Iron Council and Jeff Vandermeer's City of Saints and Madmen I think was a clue that I wanted more weird, dark fantasy, and approached May's series at the wrong time.
Finding now that I am genuinely enjoying it more the second time around, with the myriad of down to earth characters-in a ordinary person way and in a ready to play dirty to achieve ends way.. Also more accepting of the weird mix of science fiction aliens almost seeming fantastical against the very real ancient Earth set as a methodically described fantasy wilderness.
