Nelson Jackson is no more, only the Reaper remains. The group of Sin Eaters that he leads is wreaking havoc on those that seek to take down the Republic. It is their greatest hope to help the Republic regain control of our nation. The Federal States is bent on destroying those that try to exercise their constitutional rights.
Watson’s fifth novel in the Forgotten Forbidden America Series, Sin Eaters is the most intense yet. What was once just an annoying gnat to the Federal States is now a swarm of angry hornets. And, any other nation that tries to assist the Federal States has the Sin Eaters visited upon them.
As dark as the writing is for this book therein lies several moments of levity. It is well balanced and helps break the tension. Watson does an excellent job of bringing out all of the reader’s emotions. What remains to be seen is if there is hope of rescuing Nelson from his Reaper persona should the Federal States be taken down.
5 out of 5 stars.
