Corruption by Nick Wilford
I read the first book in the series, Black & White, and enjoyed it. I do believe that this one is better than that one, and that's saying a lot. This book is part 2, and Wilford tells a great story. Wilford has a writing style and imagination that I enjoy. The characters, Wellesbury and Ezmerelda "Ez" have a great chemistry and are now on a new journey and have to face a villain that is a disease. It's both dark and heartfelt, and a magnificent journey that makes me look forward to the next one in this advertised trilogy.
