really liked it

I read all three of the Ravenor series, but this review should sum them all up. SciFi is not my usual reading grounds, but the husband got me into this series.

Abnett reminds me the most of Alexandre Dumas. The chapters are short, action packed, and generally end with a cliff hanger. Ravenor's team is almost always in peril...and that's great. His characters are fleshed out and endearing with wonderful quirks, like the muscle man who boringly reads erotica. Ok, probably not the best example, but one of my favorites. I also love the fact that Abnett is not afraid to kill off beloved characters. Abnett has a gift for keeping the reader eagerly flipping through the pages to see what happens next.

The short chapters and the page turning aspect would make this a great book to read on a plane. Or, to read out loud like we did.
