Running The Race
N. A. T. Grant
This fast-paced sequel, the second in the projected Race trilogy, has tighter writing and plotting than the first book. In Running the Race Megan’s mysterious Scottish grandfather comes front and centre to mobilise the good guys and hopefully redeem himself in Megan’s eyes. Megan finds renewal, but this is dashed when Treiger drowns during a mission to kill the neo-Nazi leader. Or so she thinks.
I still haven’t read Harry Potter – I’m waiting for the whole series to be finished – because I don’t like being left, figuratively speaking, tied to the railroad tracks with the hero. And although Running the Race doesn’t leave the reader in such an unnerving spot as Race Without Rules did, it is clear from a few clues that some loose ends have been left. And some are very close to home. mRb
