Really weird concept. I read the first one and really enjoyed it (as I enjoy all of Duane's books), but this one was so violent with not much of a story and I didn't like the ending at all!! I guess I'll read the next one when it comes out as I've invested all this time on the first 2, but I am not really looking forward to it at this point. I am quite disappointed actually.....I normally think he's a brilliant writer! At least one of his books is in my top 10 all time favourites! (The Blonde)
