I find the authors works very wordy, as in they use words and language that is very apt for the jobs their characters do and sometimes I have no idea what the hell they're talking about so I can sometimes find it hard to get into.
That being said, I really like Tom and Prophet. It may have taken me a while to read this but since it was a story about those two I persevered and enjoyed learning more about them. In the last one I think I was more of a Tom fan and in this I was more for Prophet.
One quote near the end had me smiling happily:
"You'll end up with a man whose name starts with E."
Not that I'm going to tell you what his real name is, you'll have to read it for that.
I look forward to reading more books about these two at a later date. (And I'd really like to know what's going to happen next for Cillian and Mal, too)
