This book may be part of the Jack Howard series but the reality is that more than 75% of the story takes place in flashbacks to the 1880s, following the actions, conversations and plots of British military men during the war in Sudan. Jack Howard and the IMU crew are minor charcters and their fragmented appearances never manage to form a coherent or engaging storyline.
The narrator isn’t much help with his odd and overdone voices that do not even match his own earlier narration of the previous Jack Howard novels.
All in all, this book is extremely difficult to get into, highly fragmented and a bit too fantastic in the myriad of lucky breaks the author included to try to make this story come together.
It’s a fail, and a disappointment compared to other books in the series.
