Ghost Country by Patrick Lee

I finished another book. It was Ghost Country by Patrick Lee. I was looking forward to this after reading the first book in the series The Breach.

It was pretty good. It only took about a few days to read it. The story picks up two years after The Breach ended. Travis has left Tangent and gone back to obscurity as a warehouse worker with a new identity. Due to an urgent crisis Paige from Tangent recruits Travis to go on another wild adventure to battle sinister forces.

Of course there are the fantastic gadgets from the breach. The story centers around a pair of cylinders which are able to create a hole to climb through into the future 70 years forward; and climb back in present time. There were some other breach entities but not quite as many breach objects in this book as the first.

As usual there are the multiple / alternate timeline themes that Lee weaves very well. It would be possible but harder to read Ghost Country without first reading The Breach. Lee also advances some on the dark events of the future for Travis and Paige that are alluded to in The Breach.

All in all it was an entertaining and a good follow on to The Breach. I believe there are two more books in the Breach series. I'm looking forward to the next title and will be watching for it.
