What a disappointment.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dhiammara (Artefacts of Power S.) (Paperback)
This was such a let down. Right from the very beginning it felt as though Ms Furey felt that she had to finish the series and proceeded to do so in as slap-dash a fashion as possible. Characters that had previously endeared themselves due to Ms Furey's vivid characterisation lost their personalities and whereas I'd sat through all 600+(I think) pages of Aurian without even the smallest desire to put it down, with this I had to force myself to come back in the hopes it would get better.
It ends with plotlines hovering in the air and trite excuses from characters as to the reasons for this. As the first three books in the 'Artefacts of Power' demonstrated, Ms Furey is a wonderful author and I can only hope that this was an abberation on her part. I would be more than willing to buy this again if Ms Furey would consider re-vamping it, endowing it with a similar magic to that which permeates the rest of the series. However, as it stands it is unworthy.
A huge disappointment.
