I'm a very picky sci-fi reader. A lot of books out now are lacking in plot, character depth, and readability. The Chronicles of Elantra bundle excels in all three areas. The plot of each book is extremely developed and interesting, with little twists and turns at just the right times. The plot is believable (as believable as a sci-fi plot can be) and unexpected. Most of the characters are developed well, with only a few minor exceptions. But the few flat characters of the book appear very seldom and mainly add color to the plot. The book is very readable also. The romance between the two main characters is sweet, but it doesn't try to steal the spotlight. All in all, a great read! I would recommend it to any sci-fi fan.
