Commented at Amazon, 6 October 2013:
I am a fan of book 1, so despite some initial reluctance to read what would inevitably be more of a monster story, I couldn’t resist. And I was once again engrossed.
I like the way Bird writes: A good balance of forthright and descriptive. I did get quite lost in the N, S, E, W descriptions of the landscape from different orientations, but the stories are perfectly entertaining without a good sense of direction.
The characters were again interesting. And I have a new hero – more of Matthew in future books please?
