- Author Jeffrey Archer
The second in the Clifton Chronicles trilogy picks up exactly where the previous book left off, and follows a similar pattern: tracking the movements of each character before moving onto another, revisiting some previous events before moving the story along.
Just as before, the book is riveting in its drama, and I was glad to see characters dipping in and out that we have heard of before. I was so sure we’d see Fisher again, I just didn’t think it would be quite so soon! It’s great that some of these characters are fallible, that they can be cowardly before doing the right thing - it would be tedious if they were all like Harry and Emma, headstrong and brilliant, independent and determined.
But, now, we’re left with another cliffhanger, and so I must leave off writing this review to dive straight into book three.
