Crossed +100: Volume 3 – Simon Spurrier

Here is another book in the most interesting Crossed series to date. We leap forward five years, possibly as a jumping on for new readers, or possibly it ties into the number 13.

Like the first book this is another ‘grand plan’ epic in which Salt directs the fate of the Crossed – from the grave. Also like the first book we build to a shocking climax at the end. Or at least we attempt to. Having seen it done magnificently by Alan Moore the cat is definitely out of the bag and we aren’t going to have the rug pulled out on us twice.

There is an interesting family situation developing for ‘Future,’ our antagonist, and it will be interesting to see where Spurrier goes next having taken all this time to worldbuild.

Definitely worth a read but don’t expect lightning to be striking twice.

Thumbs Up!
