Gardens (Alex Verus, #12.1), by Benedict Jacka

Gardens by Benedict Jacka

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hm… This was the grimdark version of an Alex Verus novella, I’d say. There were some rather brutal scenes and the protagonists became ever more unlikeable with the lacklustre story progressing.

Worst of all, though, one major character from the series becomes less likeable due to their actions in this novella. That actually made me slightly sad and I will pretend this novella doesn’t exist and this series really ended with “Risen”.

Still, my Stockholm syndrome says I have to award three stars out of five. 😉
