  Good morning peeps hope your weekend was great and you got some reading done. Things are winding down on farm work so I got to dive into the second book in the Fading Empire series by Ian Kane. FESTERING ABYSS.

                           BOOK BLURB

 As empires continue to crumble, Leonard Kilbane’s brave but seemingly outmatched resistance fighters come under increasing assaults by malevolent forces determined to crush them.

The team becomes the target of a massive military force that drives them further into the deadly outlands. There, they encounter an evil presence hidden beneath the sands that causes even their pursuers to hesitate.

Back in civilization, John Hughes and Frank Coletti are on the run after uncovering shadowy alliances that place their very lives in grave danger. A mysterious woman, Iva, helps them evade their enemies as they attempt to navigate the treacherous underworld of 2083 Los Angeles. Hughes’ nemesis LACDF Sergeant Erik Pike leads a merciless manhunt for them.

Meanwhile, Desmond Highmore and his fellow elites plot to further their already dominant positions over society in their twisted game of life and death. What are their ultimate motives?

                      MY REVIEW 
 Kilbane and the men are back and trying to keep the resistance alive but at every turn they are fighting foes that are really trying to crush them at every turn. When the military force forces them deeper into the badlands the team encounters an evil presence that may be the end of them if they can't get out. While they are fighting in the badlands back in civilization Hughes and Coletti are running for their lives after uncovering a shadowy alliance that has put them in grave danger. With the help of Iva a mysterious woman who helps them evade Sergeant Pike and his manhunt for them. The elites are also planning their future and their dominance over society. What will their ultimate end game be . 

  Oh there are so many characters in this book, Kilbane and the team are back and better than ever. Kilbane is feeling the heat as they try and survive this latest adventure they are on. He is a true military veteran who knows how to fight. He has an unwavering respect for the military and an unwavering sense of pride when it comes to military traditions.  Blood wolf is also returned, and I truly like this character he is a walk softly and carry a big stick kind of character. He is trained in tracking. making trap and various other military training. He doesn't really show that much emotion, but you really get to feel his emotion when he actually shows them. These are just a couple of the strong characters in this book. You will love them and hate them at the same time. Each character is crafted with special skills and traits that you will love or hate, 

  This is a book that when you sit down to read you will probably not move for a good two to three hours. The storyline sucks you in and you will be on the edge of your seat most of the way through it. There is more of the steam punk aspect in this book. We get to see some very strange animals and people throughout this story. The characters are well written and complex you will like them and hate them at the same time. There is a lot that goes on throughout the book with multiple povs throughout, but you really don't get lost you really get to understand at what can be going on.  This is one of those books that you should read on a rainy weekend curled up under a cozy blanket and get lost in a world the author has made and keeps expanding. I would read book one first and then dive right into this one I promise you will not be disappointed.
