  1. Do you have any idea if this is going to be an open ended series or if it is going somewhere? You’re reviews are making me curious but since I don’t start unfinished series anymore (or extremely rarely anyway), I’m wondering if it will be years, or decades for things to wrap up 🙂

    1. For the time being, it feels a lot like it’s open-ended and will go on to infinity and beyond, unless the author decides to put an end to it soon. In fact, based on what I’ve seen somewhere at some point, I think he signed on to write a book 3 (this one) and a book 4. So… There’s at least one more book, and if there will be more, no one knows.

        1. Yep… I find it rare that there’s any detective stories that has a “master plan” to it and is scheduled to be a trilogy. In fact, I think the author is a fan of Michael Connelly, and if you know the author, then you know how long his series are and how interconnected his different series are too… If that’s any indicator of what Joe Ide plans to ever do, then I think it’s a bit hopeless for you to ever check this out hahahaah

  2. Having now read all three of your reviews (well, no idea if there are any more volumes that will follow these), I’m so far incredibly intrigued by this series. This volume sounds by far the most interesting to me, because the story takes a turn for the dark so to speak. I have alwyas been fascinated by the more darker stories (yeah…I know that sounds scary 😂😂), but it is what it is. But overall so far this series really sounds wonderful. I might check this out when I can find it at my local comics store. Great review as always! 😊

    1. Based on what I’ve read somewhere, there’s going to be a 4th book, but I couldn’t tell you if it’ll be end the end of this series or not. And yes, I totally understand hahah I love my stories to have a darker touch to them, it’s just so much more interesting in every way possible. 😀 Is your local comic book shops the only place where you can get your hands on novels? Cause this series isn’t a comic book series hahah Wouldn’t want you to be disappointed to be not find it in those shops hahah 😀 Thanks for reading, Michel!

      1. Okay, I feel like a perfect idiot here: Looking at the covers for these I had always assumed these were graphic novels 😅
        Well…luckily I have a huge bookstore in Utrecht where I buy most of my novels. So, I’m definitely going to keep these in mind next time I visit there😊
        Well..if there is going to be 4th book, I look forward to seeing your review for it 😊😊

    1. Thanks, Caroline! I believe they plan to turn this series into a TV show at some point too. Maybe you’ll end up adding it to your ginormous watch list because, why not? And after all.. Bigger is better? 😀 😀 And yes, I believe the author signed on to write a 4th book. I can’t say if that one will be the last one though, but if it’s a hit, the publisher will probably want more out of him, unless he wants to end IQ’s story there. 😮

  3. While it might be a bit of a challenge, I’d love it if you could link back to related series reviews you’ve posted. This is my first time hearing of IQ, though I’m certain you’ve reviewed the other books in this series in the past. After that introduction, I’m all about hearing your own growth and development with IQ over the last few books. 🙂

    I’ll have to keep an eye out for this series in the future. This sounds dark, and sometimes violent, it seems worth it. Character development is the key to my heart, after all. 😉 Great review!!!

    1. Not a challenge at all since I already do that. It’s in the “Details” section, at the end. I always link back to all the previous volumes. 😉

      I’m glad it piqued your interest. I do wonder what you’d think of the character, the writing and these stories! I haven’t seen anyone’s review for this series so far, as odd as that may seem hahah Thanks for reading, Jackie! 🙂

      1. O_o You think I’d pay closer attention. I didn’t realize those were links! Thanks for helping me notice.

        I went to the library yesterday and I.Q. was sitting on the “Too Good To Miss” shelf. I don’t have time in my month to read it now, but I cannot wait to pick it up in early 2019. I am trying to stretch my reading a bit. Stop being scared of the unknown and all that. Here’s hoping I love it!

  4. You raise a good point with multiple views. I find too that there is usually a character you just feel like skipping reading about. In my case, it’s because I might get attached to the more interesting character and want to continue reading from that character’s viewpoint.

  5. Interesting… it looks like after book #2, things went back to better again 🙂 and that’s delightful! I actually just finished binging on the BBC Sherlock Holmes series on Netflix and to see you pull a SH reference, due to my current series-hangover – has given me a bit of a push and more interest in this series of books! 🙂 Wonderful review 🙂

    1. Oh man, I always died a little every time I finished the latest episodes of BBC’s Sherlock Holmes whenever they came out. So very few every year! But the quality fo each episode is soooo outstanding! I never get enough of Sherlock Holmes. 😀 😀 Glad to spark some interest in this series. I’m sure you have your hands full with Sherlock Holmes-inspired stories though hahah We’ll never not have enough of those out there. 😀 Thanks for reading, Liz!
