This second volume of FreakAngels charts a turn from mere survival of the Whitechapel clan and their local peasantry, to a more ambitious rebuilding project in the ruins of London. Some new psychic powers are demonstrated, and it turns out that the mutants use the eight-circuit psychological model of Timothy Leary in describing their paranormal interactions with other minds.
I first noticed in this volume — though it was surely true in the previous one — that each of the FreakAngels has the letter K in his or her name.
The title continues to impress and engage me, and I’m enjoying the leisurely pace of narrative development. I already have the next volume on hand, but I’ll take a little breather before reading it.
