I started reading Intervention, the prequel, on a holiday and got trapped by it. This is the same - a great read and very engaging. Both were a bit hard to get into but worth the effort to persist through the various discussions of meta-functions and relative strength, as these are left to the reader to interpret. Looking forward to reading the second book, Diamond Mask, but couldn't find the third book in the trilogy, Magnificat - any help?
