The Twelve Children of Paris
Even though I already posted a bit about this novel, I wanted to log an official, albeit short review now that I have finished it. To avoid too much retread, suffice to state that what I posted while reading The Twelve Children of Paris held true right through the end of the novel.
Willocks pulled it off again. It's as good as The Religion and entirely different from it, too - which is how any truly great sequel should be - a new story, not a retread.
There are surprises plenty plot-wise, and I never knew who would survive or who would die right until the final page.
If Willocks sticks to his vision of a trilogy, he needs to outdo himself twice over. After The Twelve Children of Paris, I have utter confidence he can do that.
Truly an awe-inspiring novel.
