's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012_release_read, genre-sf, read_2012

Another series ending (maybe?) and again I plan to talk later more and have a full review, but in short i would say two things:

- first 3/4 (more or less) of the novel are awesome and i thought this would be a top 25 of mine, but the ending is a bit disappointing and this is why i hope for more; it will be a major spoiler to say why but essentially it suffers from the "great tension, great danger, way too easy out" syndrome

- i realized why I love so much this whole series - nostalgia - as something that has Jules Verne, Karl May, Sherlock Holmes, Winnetou, Milady de Winter, the Comte Rochefort, Van helsing, Bram Stoker, Viktor Frankenstein, Harry Houdini, etc etc as characters - cannot be but wonderful if done well
