The thrilling follow-up to The Hunt for Pierre Jnr. The Weave is left reeling after an explosion devastates the city of Busan. Who is behind it? What does it mean for the psis?
Pete Lazarus has been taken captive and Colonel Pinter is discovering the joys of rejuvenation, while the most powerful telepath ever born marches steadily towards world domination, collecting subservient Citizens in his wake. In this second instalment of the trilogy, following on from The Hunt for Pierre Jnr, David Henley immerses us into a world of ambiguity where the end does not always justify the means.
For those who have read 'The Hunt for Pierre Jnr' the second book in the trilogy if finally here.
I have to say that I found this a very hard book to get into. When I got to the end of 'The Hunt for Pierre Jnr' I knew that it was left open well enough for a sequel (and didn't know that it was part of a trilogy at the time) but I wasn't on the lookout for a sequel as I hadn't enjoyed the first book enough to have a big desire to read Manifestations. In Manifestations, the revolution has begun, following on from the events of the first book.
I had to really push myself to get past the first couple of chapters, I really didn't like the style of writing and it felt like I was being talked down to quite a bit and so I almost gave up on the book. The characters are ok, but I really didn't gel with the characters and so I ended up having to listen to some music in the background to get through the book. It wasn't awful, and it does give a good filler between the first and second book, but I don't really care about any of the characters nor do I have any concern to find out how it all ends.
It's just not my type of book and so isn't something that I would recommend.
