Reviews of Opus Secunda by Alex Sumner

Maria Savva reviewed on Jan. 19, 2012

I really enjoyed this book. You can tell that a book is good when you finish it and can't wait to read the sequel. I was looking forward to this after reading The Magus, the first book in this trilogy. Now I can't wait to read the conclusion in the third book!
It's difficult to really categorise this book. It is a murder mystery, but has elements of romance, erotica and horror, and even sci-fi; as well as including insights into mystical subjects such as alchemy and various types of magic.
This book follows Detective Nichola Peterson, after she is promoted following the death of her partner. She is drawn into a mysterious world while she investigates a murder, and meets many interesting and diverse characters along the way. I think the characters in the book are all lifelike and realistic. This is an entertaining book, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys modern literature. There are many sexually explicit scenes in the book, so it's probably not suitable for under 18s.
