Kingdom of darkness
Brilliant bring on the next one!
Kingdom of Darkness
I've read all this series of books from Atlantis etc. I love the combination of factual & fiction/legend mix of Andys stories.
I did enjoy Kingdom of Darkness, but I felt this one had lost a little of the previous tiles 'bite' & 'wow' factors that defined them. I still feel there's a movie franchise in these stories, as I have since Atlantis, with the main characters & the historical elements played up, rather than just all out action.
Can't wait for the next episode of Eddie & Nina. hope Kingdom isn't evidence of Andy running out of steam
Cracking read from start to finish, upto
McDermott's usual standard
