Zero's Return (The Legend of ZERO, #3)

    Sigh. The 1st book was too gory. The 2nd book was adventure. The 3rd book is shameless.

    So, it starts with a twist, sets some things up, then wanders around for hundreds of pages doing nothing much, then ends with what amounts to advertising for a second trilogy. Probably not bothering.

    It's a fun series, and a fast read. The author has turned down the gore from the 1st book, which is IMO an improvement, since a hero that joins an organization that dissolves asthmatic kids heads is a bit of a stretch, and has turned it more into an adventure thing.

    This book is sooooooooooo good.

    At first it was hard to follow, too many characters, too many things happening, the world too strange. About half through the book it all clicked and it became absurdly enjoyable. I am literally in pain because the second part of the duology is not available yet.

    Also, the idea of worldbuilding so that the most important enterprise for humankind is sort of a free Uber is hilarious.

    Satire in the Douglas Adams style, but of course noone is Douglas Adams (not even Douglas Adams most days)
