Book Review: Blaze of Glory by Michael Pryor - Reviewed by Quirk (19 Oct 2010)
Like the previous book in the series, this book has turns and twists that are magnetic in their charm and complexities. Once again you are in the hands of an accomplished author who guides you at break neck pace on a journey that will be impossible to step away from. There is no flab in this book, like the rest of the series, everything you read serves a purpose, to further the plot or to explain the reasons behind the events or why the characters are the way they are. This book will not disapoint and is better then the first. Book 2 of 6
