4.0 out of 5 stars Poor start but finishes well, 13 Feb 2014

This review is from: House of Blades (The Traveler's Gate Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was close to giving it 3 stars but gave it 4 because it got better the further you read. The other way round would have felt more disappointing.

I have to say i struggled with the first half of the book, not because it was complicated or difficult to understand, but because it doesn't flow. It's a bit jumpy here and there and leaves a lot unexplained. A bit like this review!

I stuck with it because the plot is different to your usual kid gets told he's "the one" and grows up all mighty and powerful to do a bit of baddie bashing! There is that kid in this book but he's not the main character. The main character has to do things the hard way if he wants to be a hero!

I read the second half of the book in half the time it took to read the first. The characters came more alive, the book flowed a little more and as all first books of a trilogy must do, the ending made me buy the second book.
