“Not even close to as good as the first one. I don't mind having to suspend belief when reading or watching fiction, but there were just a few things in this book that made zero sense, even in the universe the authors were portraying. I really don't understand why Dark's magic credentials given to him by Graysmith (and apparently Homeland Security) worked by simply flashing a screenshot on this cell phone to any and all authorities, yet he couldn't tell Special Circs anything, as if it was a crime what he was doing?
The criss-crossing around the country, never sleeping or resting, the rent-a-cop building security guards man-handling bombs and just tossing them in a corner of the basement. A lot of this story played out like a bad season of 24.
I am happy that they didn't bring Sqweegel back to life, though. The first book ending on the cheap tactic as if it was a possibility was bad enough. They got out of that nicely.
