Pollock’s third trilogy winds up with a storm raging across fevered streets. It’s very difficult to talk about without spoilers, but let it be said that, although this is a cohesive trilogy, every book stands on, and as, its own beast, fundamentally different from the others, but fitting together in a whole.
Mater Viae is back, and she wants her city back, even if her taking it back will destroy it. Beth is being slowly killed by London, given the choice between starvation and poison, what should she choose? Pollock isn’t kind to his characters, but it’s a lovely ride.
