As the third in the Aberddu Adventures series this book kept up the high standards of the last two. It was also a book that was moving and introduced some interesting new characters, that we can but hope to see again.
This is a good read, and the first in a series of books based around the Aberddu Adventures. With engaging characters that seem almost to have a life of their own, it is a digital page turner.
I can but commend it to you for reading, and hope to see many more books by LG Surgeson
An enjoyable mystery, however I have to say it is the interplay between Crowner and Sheriff that catches me much more. Also nice that it picks up well on the first book in the series, however you don’t need to have read the first to know what it’s on about.
The Winter That Follows: An Aberddu Adventure is an excellent background to the other tales in the series. The characters are rich and deep, and give the feeling of having lived. Also it was nice to see a little more of the rich world in which these tales are set. I look forward to the next in the series.
The Windup Girl – Review
An interesting read to start with, drops the reader straight into the near future world of a post oil civilisation, and the issues raised by this.
The main characters seem well constructed, and the plot moves at a nice pace. It is not quiet the action thriller page turner, but it is also not so slow that I want to put it down all the time. The chapters are a nice length, and allow for the reading of one or two before bed.
The characters while at times a feeling like they are simply filling a space, do have depth in parts. Some that comes out as the book goes on.
In general I’d say this is good read and worth looking up.
