The Hidden Family - Charles Stross
book 2 picked right up and moved forward. better conclusion and third leg of world building. still didn't complete story cycle but did actually complete arc.
I like the story but I think I'd rather have it all at once. guess I'm turning into the kind of person who waits to buy a whole season on DVDs rather than wait for each episode.
do have a couple quibbles about language choices. in the past I've seen complaints about word choices American authors use for British characters.  in this case, the British author has his modern day Americans use an occasional term that grates on the American ear.
as for the alternate worlds, they tend to speak either Steampunk English or SCAdian English. both are evolving dialects I am fine with reading.
