    Excellent Read

    I have been hooked on Jeff Somers and the Avery Cates series ever since the first page of The Electric Church. The Eternal Prison is an excellent follow-up to Electric Church and Digital Plague. Somers has a writing style that is very dark and gritty while being also extremely engaging. His characters and settings are very three dimensional and complex and his stories keep the reader wanting more from start to finish.

    Action Packed

    This being the 3rd installment of the Avery Cates series I was a bit worried about not having read any of the other Avery Cates books. "The Eternal Prison" stands on it's own but there are references to characters and events of the past. So reading them in order may be a good idea but not necessary.

    Jeff Somers creates a future world where humans are still corrupt and violent and fighting for power, and technology has advanced with scary realism. Where people get their brains digitized and uploaded into avatars and humans get augments to became part machine.

    Avery Cates is a gunner (gun for hire), he's great character that you can't help but like and pull for, he's a survivor. In a fight you would want him on your side (and he is usually in a fight).

    Jeff Somers is an intelligent and entertaining writer that will keep you flipping pages. I will be reading the rest of the Cates series and I recommend that you do too.

    The only note of caution would be language, there is a lot of foul language but the characters would be less real without it.

    Fun and Entertaining

    Cates book 3. This time around, Avery is in prison and trying to get out with his usual flair. As usual, death and mayhem ensue. Another worthy entry in the saga, and you get to see some people you've only heard about hereto-for. More action and the usual witty nihilism you've come to expect from Somers.

    I Also Recommend:

    Surprisingly different structure

    Book 3 of the Avery Cates Series. This one threw me for a loop as the structure is much different than the first two books. I learned to love it, but the two stories at once was confusing to me during the first half of the book (I think this is my fault for reading too slow and forgetting which character was which). Don't fret though, it still has the great characters and daring plot twists that I have come to equate with this series. Not to be missed!
