Spoiler Alert!!!

I read the Lives of Tao thinking it was a one-off book. I learned about the Deaths of Tao right after I finished the first book. I thought the Deaths of Tao was going to be good but instead, I found it was great.

Set a few years after the events in the first book, this story takes place with Roen separated from his wife and son, living in seclusion and acting as a rogue agent. He is still aligned with the Prophus but acting more off-the-wire. I have to admit, I was disappointed to hear of the separation of Roen from his family. I was happy to see the way that Roen had grown as an agent though.

I found this story to be less about the individual and more about the global conspiracy and intrigue. There was still plenty of action but the politics and intrigue were equally exciting.

I can't wait to see that Wesley has in store for Tao, the Tan family and the rest of the world.
