    3. Ever since the end of the Diogenes Trilogy, the series has been in a decline I still look forward to each new one, but each new entry has less going for it than the last In my opinion, the good ones have been Relic, Reliquary, The Cabinet of Curiosities, Still Life with Crows, the Diogenes Trilogy, and White Fire Why the decline Firstly, I think too much Pendergast is a bad thing The books where he wasn t the sole protagonist are usually much better than the ones where he is He s much mor Ever s [...]

    7. Thanks to Netgalley and Grand Central Publishing for providing me a copy of this to read in exchange for an honest review.So as many of you know, the Pendergast series is one of my longest followed and most beloved series I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good thriller with adventure and strangeness mixed right in This wasn t the strongest entry into the series, what with a relatively predictable villain and a meandering plot with some side stories that felt unnecessary, but it was s T [...]
