Specters of the Dawn Reviews
I didn't really get into this book from the Moreau series. It wasn't as exciting as the others and the main character, Angel, wasn't as strong or as likable as the others. It was cool to see where Angel went after the first Moreau book, but I didn't think that she should have gotten a book on her own.The writing was just as good as the other books and the plot fit with the overall story but it just didn't grab me the way the first book did. Overall 2.5 out of 5 stars.
I have enjoyed the two Swann Moreau books that I have read to date, but I also find them a bit frustrating. In trying to determine what my issue is with Swann's books, I think its falls into his writing.He is not a bad writer, oh I have read much worse, but I think I would describe his overall style as stiff. And, that stiffness I think is why it takes me awhile to get into his books. With some writer's I pick up up the rhythm and fall into that rhythm as I read. I have trouble picking up Swann's beat.The concept is a good one, and arguably takes David Brin's Uplift concept a bit further. Humanity has uplifted multiple species, primarily because of wars fought in the Asian sub-continent. Those wars have also led to refugees fleeing those conflicts and settling into ghettos in the U.S. Swann doesn't rely on the same protagonist in each book. Angel, a rabbit, is the main character here, and she accidentally falls into a conspiracy that has world shattering proportions. I did like the slow reveal of the conspiracy, because I thought both the reveal's pacing and facts made sense for the story.Nohar, a tiger private investigator from the first Moreau book, makes a cameo appearance. A timeline for this world is attached at the end of the book and for a world building/history buff like myself I appreciated these snippets of added detail.As an aside Swann has written three trilogies, which appear loosely tied together of which the Moreau books are the first trilogy.
Somehow both better and worse than the previous books in the series. and nothing much more to say about it, just more fun, light/cheap reading. This time a rehabilitated-grown-on-the-street bunny character for a main one. and more of the aliens conspiracy plot development.
The thrird novel of the amazing Moreau series. And who would have thought a rabbit would be this entertaining? First rate!
