Monsters of men - Patrick Ness

The third of the Chaos Walking trilogy brings to a conclusion the conflict between the three groups that are vying for control of the 'new world'. We hear for the first time the 'noise' of the indigenous inhabitants, the 'spackle'. Todd and Viola continue to support the opposing forces of the Mayor Prentiss and Mistress Coyle in the hope that they can bring a negotiated peace with the three parties. Mankind's hunger for power and inability to bargain with integrity are key thematic concerns.
Fast-paced and unpredictable - I didn't want to it down until I'd finished.
