The third book of this enthralling series is just as good as the first two.
‘The Lock In’ continues where ‘The Taken’ left off. Ezekiel has decided which side she needs to be on, but the problem with that idea is that she soon begins to realise that they might have different plans for her, ones that don’t include her being on their side.
So Ezekiel finds herself running on the streets again, but after the bombings everything has changed. Faust makes an appearance with his minions the Ninkashi, who are all very hungry, and much mayhem, gore and death ensues as more of the story and characters are slowly revealed to us. And that’s what makes these books so good: they are incredibly action packed, fast paced books, dark and not so pleasant, which contrasts so well with story and character backgrounds — that reveal more of the plot — getting drip fed slowly throughout that action. So even after 3 books, i’m still not sure what’s really going on, but it really doesn’t matter, because to get here has been an awesome ride. The destination is somewhere ahead, who cares where, the journey is more than good enough.
There simply isn’t any downtime in these books. Find a comfy chair or bed and start reading, you may be there for a while.
