BASILISK Launch Party: Goodreads Reaver Review09 Aug 2011, Posted by Blog, Books, Contests, Fun, Reavers, Reviews, Rob Thurman's Twitter, The Chimera Novels in
The second book in the Chimera series is just as fast paced and interesting as the first one. This time around we get Misha’s perspective on the situation and he’s really grown in the three years since the end of Chimera; at least he’s certain he has. The big bad of the book (The Institute and its ‘children’) are as creepy as ever and the action sequences are fantastic. My favorite aspect of the book is the interaction between the brothers Stefan and Misha as Misha comes to realizes that maybe he doesn’t have everything figured out after all. Add some good old fashioned snark and a dash of the science fiction and Basilisk has been my favorite read of the year.
