DARK FORCES ARE RISING AGAIN
But when masked assassins strike at the heart of the UK government, a shocking new threat emerges that forces all three to reunite.
DEADLIER THAN EVER BEFORE
With time running out, they must defeat a lethal new adversary: a manipulative mastermind with sinister powers unlike anything they’ve seen before.
Aftershock is the culmination of a simply brilliant trilogy from Adam Hamdy, I’m genuinely distraught to have come to the end of this journey with Wallace, Ash and Bailey. It has been a pure adrenalin rush of a read from the very first page of Pendulum to the very last page of Aftershock.
This is how all thrillers should be – filled with beautifully drawn characters you root for and care about, more action than you can shake a stick at and an intelligent, pacy plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.
Aftershock is a pitch perfect finale, bringing back all our favourites, adding some new (or old) evil into the mix, continuing the trademark set pieces that make these novels such a joy to ride along with and resolving things in a beautifully relevant way.
I was riveted, literally glued to it, like watching the best movie ever but in literary form. At the end I was more than a little tearful, Aftershock was hugely satisfying and an absolute pleasure. Could not have asked for more.
