FROM HELL WITH LOVE
It would be pretty hard not to like brooding, charming Eddie Drood as he returns for his fourth adventure in Green’s Secret Histories series. Eddie’s hip, breezy narrative makes tagging along on his adventures a pleasure, and Green weighs him down with enough introspection to make him a multidimensional hero instead of a simple caricature. The otherwise tight plot is slightly hampered by a few battle scenes that grow repetitive, but it is also filled with fun gadgetry, humor and underneath it all, some pointed observations about loyalty, family and the human quest for immortality. New readers will appreciate the provided summary of the series.
