Book Review: Written in Fire
I’m one of those many readers who fell in love with this Marcus Sakey’s series w/ its first installment. While the premise isn’t overtly original (substitute “brilliants” with “mutants” in any X-Men comic and you’d have pretty much have the same story), the execution and colorful characters really made the whole thing gel. It was a smart thriller series and a lot of fun to read.
It’s sad to see a good thing end but worse to watch it go down in flames. Sadly, if there is another book in this series (which there probably will be) I won’t be jumping along for the ride.
That being said, if you haven’t checked out the first and second books, please do. They really are a joy to read and a fun adventure, just don’t look for as exciting of a conclusion.
