First book that really sets Swan apart from Gold

A fantastic book as usual from Cameron.

We start to see some more character growth that sets Swan apart from Gold rather than just being in a setting a couple hundred years in the future.

You really get a good feel for how tired Swan is of it all and how he literally asks, "When will it ever end"

Peter Noble is of course 10/10 as always as well especially with all the pronunciations

Excellent novel

The novel was well paced, suspenseful and a delight to listen to. There was strong character development and the author made you feel compassion for some of the villains. As is often true in life, it was sometimes difficult to distinguish the heroes from the villains.

il libro era perfetto

Well another Tom Swan adventure in the bag and I can’t wait for the next! This is such a wonderful series and I love just how much all of the principle characters have grown since the beginning. Luckily Swan will have at least 6 years until the next papal election, plenty of time for a good fight.
