Franklin Flyer review Ú eBook or Kindle ePUB summary É eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Nicholas Christopher Ghtenment charting his fate by pursuing the unexpectedHe encounters a glittering cast of characters among them Rita Hayworth Josephine Baker OSS founder “Wild Bill” Donovan and a host of political zealots opportunists and dreamers thrown together in a world on the brink of collapse With each new invention–devices that help to revolutionize everything from early television to the technology with. Overall VERY GOOD I flew through this At times it bogs down slightly in the super intricate politics of Europe in the 1930s mostly towards the end but overall really fun super engaging He s awesome at pulling in these tiny little threads of magic realism that add a little flavor without being distracting or out of place My only gripe was the last chapter which was pretty disappointing I was a little worried about the women in this book thinking He s writing cool women but where is this going and wondering if we were going to have a Magical Unattainable Unknowable Woman Problem And I thought Well maybe not But then it turns out we do So in terms of his entire canon and how he writes women it s a little closer to Veronica in that respect Which is fine just not my favorite In general I would order his books from least to most favorite like this Veronica Franklin Flyer A Trip To The Stars The Bestiary
