I'll be perfectly honest, here. If Mr Hodder comes out with another dozen books in this series, I'll be buying them all.
His writing style is unlike any others I've read/heard. Which is neither a good, or negative judgement. It's just...different. While I'd be inclined to say it's refreshing, much of the prose is couched in a linguistic form used in Victorian England, so it comes off as a little stuffy and antiquated. It's the content, and situational awareness/reactions/thoughts of the characters that breathe life into the narrative of the story. I suppose what I'm saying is that while it may seem to be a bit dry on your first go into his detailed universe(s), there's an amazing story woven throughout, with characters that have actual depth.
It'd take no small amount of intelligence and creativity to write these novels, and Mr. Hodder has them in spades. A great effort, and I can't wait to see the next in this series.

The (probable) final chapter in the series is dark and brutal...but one of the best. I loved it and an very satisfied with the epic conclusion!

it has taken me some time to approach this story as I knew this was the last one, but I'm glad I finally did.
it was a very enjoyable adventure with a beautifully written conclusion allowing the series to come to a satisfactory end, while giving the hope of future stories in the same universe.
I honestly don't know what I'm going to do now that I'm done although I will be looking into the lives of these people in our own time line.
This was the sixth and final book. As the last third of the three-parter that was books 4-6 I may have enjoyed the second half of this series even more than the first.
Narration was as excellent as ever.
