2.0 out of 5 stars has potential, but realization doesn't hold up, 10 July 2012
This review is from: The Adamantine Palace (Memory of Flames Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I generally like the idea of the story and the world that has been created. the dragons are nice as well and their history too. however, the humans and their world are a massive letdown. the whole story turns around a handfull of humans and their power play; the rest of the world is forgotten. you learn nothing of the common people, what the world looks like "on the ground". all you hear about are castles, fortresses, the sky and clouds. the politics that are taking place are meaningless because they have no impact on the world, it's all about personal gain of a few people. the alliances are not explored in depth, the links between the main characters are too weak, the politics don't draw you in, the characters are too shallow.

i like the concept and the idea behind the story, but it would have been nicer to explore the story in more depth. i was hoping that this issue was because this book was a debut and the sequel might be better. so I read the second book as well, but it doesn't get better, unfortunately. this book is not for me.
