If he is to solve the mystery of his ability and this hidden craft then he must dig deeper to find out the agenda of those around him.
Connor must find out the truth of the Edifice.
‘The Edifice’ is a first instalment in a new series. It sets up the world pretty nicely and I greatly enjoyed reading this book. There was a lot of intrigue and twists that kept me hooked. The ending left me wanting more, so I can’t wait for book 2.
