This is a truly terribly-written book. I came to it expecting a light entertainment built on the flimsy ground of its prequel. What I got was a baggy mess that got nowhere at all despite spending a few hundred pages groping for a plot.

If you read the first one, you might be curious about the attempted Irish accent that was inflicted on Grainne. This has not been repaired, and Grainne's dialog, which was just about the worst part of the original, is just as bad. This, unfortunately, is in no way the worst thing about this book.

It's actually pretty impressive just how bad this book manages to be. While the first was able to careen from one implausibility to the next fast enough to keep you from really thinking too much about just how ridiculous it was, this one lingers over its mistakes, like a dog over its vomit.

Trying to catalog those mistakes would be tedious. They all add up to one thing: Galland doesn't trust the plot she's concocted to carry the reader through from one end of the book to the other, and justifiably so. Instead of repairing the plot, she resorts to killing off characters or subjecting them to sexual assault or graphically-described torture when she's afraid the reader's attention might be flagging. The fact that the first of these incidents comes in the opening pages of the book should give you a pretty clear indication that this writer does not believe you're in good hands here.

And, gentle reader, on that she is perfectly correct. If you read and enjoyed The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O, it's probably best to leave this one unread.

Personally, having read this sequel I've consigned both volumes to my local Little Free Library. ( )

I enjoyed this return to the world of D.O.D.O. very much, and recommend it! It's another good rollicking time-traveling thriller. ( )

'Master of the Revels' picks up where 'D.O.D.O.' leaves off with Grainne free to pursue her agenda and our heroes, though protected by the Fuggers, essentially alone in saving the timeline. This includes trips down the strand to Shakespeare's England under James I, pre-Renaissance Florence, and Roman Sicily. The book's pacing is better with Galland as the main writer. Otherwise, I didn't notice the "absence" of Neal Stephenson's hand in the writing. 'Revels' hits all the same notes as the first book with the addition of some more grounding for female characters. I enjoyed the book, loved the new characters and the humor, but the book feels too much like an in-between. 'D.O.D.O.' left off open-ended, too, but that established the rules and acronyms and most of the characters so there was a build-up. This book...leaves everything at status-quo.

In this brilliant sequel to The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland, a daring young time traveler must return to Jacobean England to save the modern world. Master of the Revels is an enthralling, history-bending adventure traversing time and space, fact and fiction, magic and science.
