I quite simply loved this book. Tacit is such a magnificent character, my favourite kind of anti-hero. Aged and scarred, rough around the edges and utterly remorseless in his pursuit for justice. But, as I think it is with all great characters, it's his mental scars that bring him to life.
The story itself is a great continuation from The Damned, a wide ranging arc with characters spread all over war torn Europe. The battle between the Church and the Werewolves continues, the violence pulsating, gritty and superbly written.
I'm already looking forward to getting stuck into book three in the series, as I just know Tacit isn't quite done yet!
