P.T. Hylton delivers a great follow-up to Regulation 19, and gives us more mystery, and answers some questions about this very imaginative and weird world. A Place Without Shadows takes place in three different places during three different times and Hylton is able to jump between them with relative ease during the narrative. This is a stronger written book than the first with a tighter story that weaves the different scenes together to form a very engaging read. At the core of the book is the struggle between good and evil and survival.
Once again the reader needs to take a lot on faith while reading A Place Without Shadows. One of the best parts of this series is that the answers are being away from the reader. With that, though, the reader needs to just accept some things that happen, and that it’ll make more sense in the future. That is not to say that there aren’t a lot of answers being given in this second book because the world building that Hylton has created is becoming clearer.
Solid series and I can’t wait to finish it off with The Broken Clock.
