The last 'New Adventure' is by far the very worst,
By A Customer
This review is from: Twilight of the Gods (New Adventures) (Mass Market Paperback)
I've been reading the New Adventures (in their many forms) since they first launched around 1991, and was very sad to here that this novel is likely to be the last. However, this novel also sees the culmination of the plot threads started up in the excellent 'Where Angels Fear', and I was looking forward to seeing everything tied up in a suitably dramatic fashion.
What a disapointment. This book is full of one-dimensional characters (including the regular characters) that bear little relation to those we have come to know, is childishly written in the extreme and packed full of cliches and idiocy that the New Adventures normally includes only as a carefully-handled piece of self-mockery.
If you've read The Mary-Sue Extrusion by Dave Stone (another New Adventure) you'll remember there are amusing snippets from 'True Adventures from the New Frontier' - New Adventure novels that are published in the New Adventures Universe, and were (intentionally, and very amusingly) the most awful pieces of rubbish ever written.
Twighlight of the God, however, is entirely written exactly like these fictional fictions, and I would recommend you not to waste your money on it. It would be better to be left in suspense by 'Where Angels Fear' than to be forced to read this rubbish. Plus the actual explanation of the entities, the method of overthrowing the entities etc etc is going to dissapoint you and annoy you BIG time. It's pathetic, truly pathetic.
If you've never read a New Adventure before, don't read this nor judge the series by this book - no other New Adventure comes even vaguely close to being as awful as Twighlight of the Gods.
