Another quite read-worthy book in the Brownstone series. In the beginning this series had quite simple stories. Bad guy(s) pisses off Brownstone. Brownstone explains their mistake which generally results in the untimely demise of said bad guy(s). However, during the course of the series, which now stands at more than 10 installments, Bronwstone’s entourage of friends (well mostly friends) has grown and so has the story.
Brownstone’s amulet has become an important part of the overall story arc and its development. It now regularly speaks to him although its vocabulary is somewhat limited usually involving words like kill, destroy etc.
As you can read in the book blurb the infamous government sticks their fingers into things this time and as usual it is a screw-up. At least at first.
Then we have the growing relations (not necessarily romantic ones) between the various characters and, on the whole, the story is becoming more and more evolved, as are the characters.
In this book Brownstone shows more restraint strategical skills and dare I say restraint than in the previous books. Okay, it is Brownstone we’re talking about so the end result is of course the same. It just arrives a few pages later than it previously did.
One the whole I quite liked the book with it’s usual bantering, cursing keeping the easily offended away, and ass-kicking by Brownstone and his friends.
