8/10 - Sergio
In this follow up to Sommeil Du Monstre we still follow the stories of Nike,Amir and Leyla, three orphans from the Balcan war who had been together while being babies in an hospital. Warhole, the bad guy from the first book has now changed into some sort of concept artist from hell (his idea of art is making a painting out the blood of murdered androids or creating a black cloud that spreads death everywhere it goes). He also uses Nike in his experiments with androids connecting him to copies of him that are sent to meet Leyla and Amir.
There's also a subplot about the discovery of some weird prehistoric findings that doesn't make much sense and the dissapearing of the witnesses of it. Hope they make sense out of it in the next books.
This books lacks the thriller fast pace of the first one and instead flows in a less defined way, maybe more aimlessly althought it's still an interesting story to follow especially because of the protagonist Blade Runneresque doubts concerning himself and the androids.
The art is as good as you can expect from Bilal, that is amazing, with a style that is realistic and very artistic at the same time.
