3.0 out of 5 stars Continuing, but not improving, 5 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Minority Council: A Matthew Swift Novel (Kindle Edition)
I have given this book a 3 star review, but I really enjoyed it. If I were to read this book alone it was be 4/5 stars, but as part of this series, I think it is the weakest.

The story is a change of pace from earlier books and feels more like a marathon rather than a sprint in terms of what Matthew needs to achieve. Characters are not safe, and often turn out to be much more than they are, and that was a really nice part of this book, that you couldn't really tell who was what. There were no huge battles in this book, but there was a lot of death and that made it quite a gritty read. I really enjoyed this book.

Those who have read the first 3 of this series will have their own opinions, but I think the change of pace/tactics put me off a little. I hope the author can keeps things interesting in the future. But it is my opinion that this is the weakest of the series so far (still going strong though), though, I should say, those that have enjoyed previous books should not be put off.

I hope I have conveyed a review of a good book, that is a little weaker than previous fabulous instalments of the series, because thats what this is.
