1. Action, adventure, suspense, intrigue, mystery – and all that’s just within the first few pages of author Matt Chatelain’s book The Four Books of Etretat, the 2nd book in the Sirenne Saga. While the action and adventure continue in this book, we also learn that Paul Sirenne – the primary character in this Saga – has been manipulated his entire life so that he would be prepared with the mental acuity needed to think on his feet; to solve puzzles quickly; to find the optimum solution to a situation that contains potentially many outcomes. They also discover that the overarching puzzle that he and his friends are working to solve spans many generations – possibly many thousands of years in the making. They also find that while Paul is the designated “leader”, at least 3 generations of each family living in the town of Etretat have also been involved – to one degree or another – in the mystery.
We – the readers – begin to suffer with Paul and his friends multiple struggles as their journey continues. The characters begin to struggle with the dichotomies of good vs evil; right vs wrong; perception vs reality; sacrificing the desires of one’s self for the benefit of many; accepted history vs newly discovered history; short term actions vs long term consequences – just to mention some of the ideas contained within the book. Paul and friends are assisted along the way by many and hindered along the way by many more. All the while Paul is called upon to use the particular strengths of each one of his friends to help solve each part of the puzzle that is presented to them at any given time.
I can’t wait to read book #3 and see what happens to Paul and friends next. Hope that you are enjoying these books as much as I am.
