Though injured, the White Wizard leaves Anthony Farrow behind as he heads into New York in search of his daughter. He is almost lost in a blizzard not of his making, but is found by a kind local who takes him in. Inspector Deal’s detention is more like a live autopsy where her memories are downloaded by an Assessor who cares only for the information she possesses. Little does he realize that Chloe has found a new ally in Inspector Deal. It will be interesting to see how that develops.
If you’ve read my other reviews, then you know I’ve enjoyed this series quite a bit. One of the many reasons is the characters. All are complex with hidden agendas of which none are straight forward. I love the fact that the White Wizard is torn between his love for his daughter and the Earth. One would think that a father would automatically protect his daughter, but when the entire world is at stake, who would you choose? I also like Inspector Deal for many of the same reasons. She is a product of her society and culture (which is harsh and unforgiving), does her job well, yet even when her superiors turn on her, she still wants to save humanity. I certainly wouldn’t blame her if she switched sides.
A complex narrative with interesting characters, I highly recommend this series to any hardcore sci-fi fan.
