This review is from: Naked Empire: No. 1 (Hardcover)
It was all that I could do to get through this book. Except for a couple of chapters on Zedd, it didn't even seem like the same person wrote this book. Like many people, money is very tight for me, so it pains me on multiple levels when I feel that I was taken advantage of. None of this story actually went anywhere. It was a large book that droned on and on about nothing interesting. It's a little late in the game to have Richard speaking (without end) about whether or not there is a justification for death vs. freedom. This could have been summed up on one page, not one-half of the book. I also didn't need the heavy handed recap of the last seven books.
Where's all the wonderful magic, the interesting, action packed adventures? Gee whiz, what was the purpose of this book?
