A Story That Drags You In!
09 October 2020
The Blood Lines series is now coming together and I'm enjoying the stories more as I get to see where they are leading. This story is a little more out of the ordinary, but for all that it drags you in. The characters in the book are well developed and well used. Even if you haven't met George, who is Hobo in the Lucy Wilson mysteries, before he is a character you quickly start to invest feeling into. Archie the is the decent everyman who when his back is to the wall fights for what he believes in, just like Brigadier, who is the everyman in the Doctor Who Universe. But Archie isn't a soldier trained to fight, he is just an ordinary man who has to survive on instinct alone! He finds himself in a world full of people who are indoctrinated in to a system that the Alien have set up. There is a resistance movement battling the aliens, but is pitifully small. Archie and George have to try and identify friend from foe, as try and achieve Archie's goal of locating the person he has been set to find in this chaotic version of the UK! There are more then one set of aliens in this place, but there is an overriding force driving it all along. The story has a lot to say about the modern tech culture! An enjoyable read.
