Redneck 3 (June 2017)

Redneck #3

Redneck is just getting better, which is sort of surpising given–while good, Cates didn’t seem too focused on mythology building. Even here, when he lays some of the groundwork for a reveal, it’s subtle. It’s in the dialogue, more for fleshing out characters than exposition; only then it turns out to be a very big reveal at the end with a lot of history. At this point, I’m confident Cates knows where he’s going and probably has a good route to get there.

And Estherren is a great fit for it. I already looked forward to enjoying Redneck, but now I’m anticipating it a lot more.
