I’d meant to take a break from Kage Baker’s Company series to read the new Temeraire novel, but I’d mistakenly left that at work on a day that I found myself needing reading material. So, The Machine’s Child it was.
There’s very little I can say about this that isn’t a spoiler. Plot ahoy, yes: though not quite to the pace of The Graveyard Game, the book still picks up most of the threads left hanging before the detour into short stories. But I’m apprehensive about the direction the series could be going, which leaves me unable to really evaluate this book on its own.
A spoiler post follows.
