I was surprised one day to discover this seuel and the later ones in this one of my favorite adventure series because I thought that the third book wrapped up the storyline of an altered history Britain perfectly if in a bleak fashion Although I was probably not paying close attention the first time that I read it Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon because some details in those final pages naturally lead to further outings I greatly enjoyed the madcap steampunktime travelledmysticalgene splicedmanipulated alt history world of the first three books Here we see the launch of an alt alt history or a Spring Heeled Jack Redux if you will Hodder takes his characters who have already been drawn from actual history and altered for this particular changed landscape and recasts them in a new re imagining of a world gone mad with technical social and cultural developments that it was ill prepared for the first time around I struggle to think of a proper comparison for this method I first thought of American Horror Story TV series in which the same actors play different characters every season of the show But it s not the actors but the characters themselves who are rearranged here Maybe like the film Dark City in which people are shuffled into new identities every night It s still not uite an apt comparison DC comics Flashpoint storyline might fit the bill The book suceeds best if you were able to develop some affection for the cast through the prior books and remember the events of the prior books well This entry not only re introduces the characters but also key events You may recall an early scene in The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack in which Richard Burton staggers his way through the back alleys of London and is beset upon by well I m not going to spoil it but this event sets up a terrific mystery adventure This scene is re purposed here creating great dramatic tension to launch this combo retelling and continuation The book is not only retakes indeed it is mostly brand new material balancing new events and callbacks with surprise character re introductions in places Swinburne fans might miss his presence for the first chunk of pages but rest assured that he has plenty of terrific moments coming up I thought it was a fantastic balance of new and old and brilliantly follows the events of the first three books I thought the action was gangbusters for most of the book but in the latter half the pacing fell off around the time that it incorporates elements of Dracula and a little bit of Frankenstein too This is all that prevents this from getting a 5 star rating from me The prior books has occasional pacing problems too but this one s persisted through to the end once they set in It still managed to throw some surprises at me even though I have read it before I retain my reading much better these days thankfully and I remain stoked for the remaining volumes in this series which will be brand new to me and I am very excited I have to give out a shout out to the continuing awesomeness of the monochromatic covers by artist Jon Sullivan on the Pyr editions They are terrific images in and of themselves and in addition are incredibly faithful to the text which I m sure the author appreciates

I love this series I completely understand why some people might not though You cannot read the books out of order It would be way too confusing And you cannot write much about them and not spoil somethingThe last book ended with a huge cliffhanger I hate cliffhangers but there are some books you simply overlook all that and eagerly wait for the next one I was wondering if it was possible to resolve all the piled up issues The book returns to all the characters that played important roles in the beginning especially in the first two It repeats a lot of events you already know about but in a different way and it adds and changes bits and pieces It is never boring The additions and changes suit the story completely There were a lot of moments when I felt as if a very dear friend whom I haven t seen for a very long time came back Even the heartbreaking moments are simply used not to be the focus of the story but rather to strengthen itIt starts with Richard Burton coming back from his successful mission to discover the source of Nile He was knighted for that achievement and was appointed the king s agent Soon he finds out that the British government was getting advice from an entity called Abdu El Yezdi Now when someone is kidnapping important scientists and a threat of a new danger is looming over the country Abdu El Yezdi isn t speaking anyThe time travel element is very strong in the story but not in a way it is in The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack where the character jumps through time throughout the bookWhat I missed in the beginning of the book was Swinburne but he made up for it in the other half of the story I still wish he appeared earlier but I understand The story needed that particular set up before he appeared There are a number of things that make this book great but as far as I am concerned Swinburne is my favourite At three in the afternoon a falsetto screeching drifted up from the street below It continued for five minutes and was followed by the jingling of the doorbell The stairs creaked as Mrs Angell ascended She knocked entered and stood with hands on hips A small hobgoblin has invaded our hallway Does it have red hair Burton asked Oh is that what it is I thought the creature s head was on fire I was going to throw a bucket of water over it before chasing it away with my broom The next might not be something a lot of people find interesting but there is romance in this book than in others if nothing else but for Burton s frankness and willingness to share I never felt I belonged anywhere until I met her Burton replied Now I feel I can belong any place at all provided I am with her The ending itself is a bit rushed but since I saw there will be a fifth book I don t mind
