Eleagabal Kuperus 1: Die würgende Hand. Reviews
Considering both volumes are part of the same, continous story, I don't feel it necessary to rate or review both separately, hence I have rated both volumes with the same overall score and am writing a review of the entire work in general here, as I find the division to be mostly pointless and not easy for me to make, having read both volumes back-to-back.The story is interesting: a benevolent alchemist/magician does battle with an amoral billionaire, where most of the attention is on the people taking part of or suffering in the conflict. Sadly, the plot thread of Thomas Bezug, apparently richest man in the world, attempting to take control of all air on the planet is cut "short" (after going on in the background for most of the novel), only to be replaced with a near Apocalypse scenario where everyone things a planet will collide with the Earth.It's all still engaging, but one cannot but imagine how the former plot thread could have went.The title character, despite appearing in the novel far less than it's actual protagonist, the near-feral poet Adalbert Semilasso, is nevertheless a very engaging and sympathetic character. The book ends on an optimistic note, with several bloody asterisks, but overall is not unpleasant to read. Only it will take significant time to do so, given it's length.
