It's quite fortuitious that this book arrived this week from the fabulous Book Depository. The current discussion book on 4MA is The Shadow Walker which is the first book in the series. I'd read the second - The Adversary - a while ago for review and really enjoyed it. The Shadow Walker is a different beast though, and I found it very hard going at points. Maybe it's the difference between a debut and the second book in a series, but it was an interesting counterpoint ot read them out of order and try and work out if I'd read the first book first, would I have ever go to the second. (Probably yes as I do try to cut first books a lot more slack than I would a second). But anyway, on the strength of the second book I'd ordered the third - now all I have to do is find the time to read it!
