My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love Six. What an amazingly crafted character he is in a world of excellence.
The plotting, pace and narrative of this one feels quite different from book one, another example if the supreme talent Santino has for creating his unique worlds.
Book one felt all uncertain and a bit slower because Nate himself was unsophisticated and unsure. Here the pace is more frantic and zips along between elements mirroring the journey Holden is taking as he realises The Community isn’t quite what it seems.
The connection between Six and Holden is at once beautiful to read and also strangely haunting as a man dubbed a cyborg for his emotionless state meets one famed for his oversharing.
Tensions abound as the series long story arc expands to include other members of The Community and I hope book three isn’t too long coming to wrap it all up!
