REVIEW: Circle of Enemies by Harry Connolly

If Circle of Enemies were made into a film and marketed by the wrong people, the tagline would definitely read: “This time it’s personal.” Still, in a nutshell, that’s what makes the third Twenty Palaces novel stand out from the other two. Rather than protagonist Ray Lilly running around meeting new people in a new place, he’s back to his old haunts trying to figure out why one of his old group of friends is accusing him of killing them all. This one has all the things that made the first two books great, with an extra helping of background on both Ray and the Twenty Palaces Society that a lot of readers (including me) have been waiting for.

Connolly announced that this is going to be the last in the series (for now), but I certainly hope he returns to these characters at some point in the future so we can enjoy more of this fantastic universe.
