Rm like species that reanimate And Possess The Drowned Dead possess the drowned dead whole series could be written about this uniue and cool specie of humanoids that are down right creepy and scary This series could be written about this uniue and cool specie of humanoids that are down right creepy and scary This had a great feel to it from the damp and wet feel that these creatures bring to the novelI loved these two books and cannot wait to read about Jacob Burn I highly recommend them It s not fair to the author to read the second book in a series first but in this case it saved a little time The first person narrator is a self described criminal whose style of narration is breathless sentence fragments Most of the characters sound the same except for the Mother Fehn a truly inspired creation There are HBO worthy levels of carnage which is not enough to interest me in reading the first book The plotting would have been interesting and the narrator appealing if of the characters had been left standing at the endRead this book if steam punk and original world building are of interest It is reminiscent of Gene Wolfe in the latter respect always a flattering comparison The character named Wilson is also a well presented original creation If Akers Ever Wrote A Preuel ever wrote a preuel Wilson s backstory I d probably be tempted I read this straight after book 1 and it just wasn t as good There s a really interesting story lurking in the wings in this world and we ve seen bits and pieces of it which might be the Burn Cycle 2 or might just be left in the wings as a barely acknowledged threat which as plot ideas go is brilliant Don t get me wrong it s still good But it took longer to get into despite being familiar with the world from book 1 and didn t seem as engaging although there are still shocks and surprises in there A decent seuel but I found the book less engaging than the first book Heart of Veridon and its ending did not really resolve things I assume it is set up for a third book but I found it well written but less original than the first on. Ies present themselves as allies and former friends set themselves against Jacob as he tries to put the dead to rest and the living to justice Everything gets difficult when he’s appointed by the Council to investigate the rise of the cog dead while some hold him personally accountable and others in the city work to use the chaos to their advantage. .
