Geoffrey Knight and The Riddle of the Sands

Geoffrey Knight not only did it again with The Riddle of the Sands, he totally blew the series out of the water... or rather, the sands. *grin*

After I finished The Cross of Sins I didn't see how it would be possible for Geoff to ratchet up not only the tension and action, but to add another steamy and crazy-fun layer of story. But he did it, and he did it marvellously!

As to which of the five of Fathom's Five I like the best, let me just say... "I don't know!"

But I think Jake Stone's leading the pack a bit.

Geoffrey Knight's series has been likened to the Indiana Jones chronicles and the James Bond series, and I agree that there's a very definite similarity. But if you really want to describe the Fathom's Five series, you'd have to have not only a combine Indy and James, you'd have to up the count to 5 gorgeous, sexier-than-sin, talented and otherwise wonderful gay men who know how to live their lives large and very much in charge.

My one complaint? We're left hanging on a few fronts... and I wanna know now! Pretty please???

  2. You're the second person who mentioned that this was a good read in as many days!

  3. There's a few of us that are reading it... but it's fantastic.

    Of course now we have to wait... and perhaps wait some more. Geoff said it could be awhile before the third book is released.. *sigh*
