3.0 out of 5 stars Too long, 6 Sep 2010
This review is from: Master And Fool: Book 3 of the Book of Words (Paperback)
This review applies to the whole Book of Words series. Basically my conclusion was that the three book series was just too long and plodding. The story was fairly lightweight and could easily have been told in one, maybe two volumes. Had they been, it would have been a far more exciting set of books. Stretching the story out into three books just seemed to be a ploy for the author to make more money.

I was getting twitchy and saying "oh get on with it" by about half way through the second book, but by that time I was invested in the story and wanted to know what would happen at the end so I struggled my way to the end.

As for what happens at the end ... well, the author seems to hope she can stretch it into yet another series so she leaves several blatant loose ends hanging. Sorry Ms Jones - the story wasn't meaty enough to warrant three books, let alone a fourth.

Even by the end I still didn't really know who the 'fool' was who was the only one who knew the truth in the prophecy. Was it supposed to have been Baralis or the Archbishop of Rorn? And if not the latter - what on earth was the point of the Archbishop of Rorn as a character?
