‘Myth Manifestation’ is book five in the SPI Files series and I was a little concerned about reading it because the previous books were pretty good and the premise for this book seemed a little risky – so I went for the Kindle version.
This transpired to be prudent for me as there are limits to how interesting a book set almost entirely in one location can be as it limits what characters and scenarios can occur whilst simultaneously hoping that the audience heavily invests in the characters that they do have access to
Lisa Shearin actually managed that challenge well, what didn’t work for me was bringing in characters and details from her Raine Benares series. I like the books I’ve read of that series and was happy that they were loosely connected, I just personally didn’t feel they needed connecting so directly.
This is totally my problem and I can see why overlapping the series could be a fun idea – personally I think they are so different in terms of technology and culture that mixing the two could result in a bad buddy cop film-style scenario.
