Isamoor's review
Feb12:

Characters: Still young Ben, very nice. I liked his friends a lot. Isaac could have been developed more, but oh well. And I loved the pirates.

Plot: Still very good. Nice to transform into a post-apocalyptic nature.

Style: Still very consistent with his other work. ( )

This one picks up right where the previous book left off. In this alternate Earth, historical figures from the 1700's study science and magic and produce amazing new discoveries - but are they inspired by angels, or by something with harm to humans in mind? The various governments of the time struggle to control the new technologies and magics, and defeat each other in the various wars of Earth at that time in history. This has a great feeling of realism with great characters in a very different Earth. Good stuff. ( )

A worthy sequel to Newton's Cannon. Good characterisations and a lively plot - but the science/fantasy element has seemed to take a life of its own that doesn't always hang together. And the final few chapters - the inevitable battle sequence at the end of a fantasy novel (why must there always be one?) - are messy and not as clear as they should be. Still I will continue reading the series. ( )
