It had been a couple of years since I had read the second book in the trilogy, and so I was worried I wouldn’t remember what was going on when I started Diamond Splinters. But all the little plot twists came back while I was reading. Dutton does a great job of pulling in past references from the other books, and he manages to do this in a seamless way. I had no problem picking up all the threads of the story and getting totally engrossed in its continuation.
I especially like how Dutton developed his characters. They’re all flawed, including our heroine, Kari, but all sympathetic in some way. You can see the “humanity” in all (I suppose there’s another word for “humanity” when you’re describing a non-human…”alienity?”), even in the antagonists in the story. Showing both good and not-so-good sides of your protagonists and antagonists is, in my opinion, one of the most important things writers can do to create depth in the story and sympathy in their readers.
This whole series is so different from practically anything else I’ve read. It’s fresh, gripping, and the story gets deeper and more engrossing with each book. There aren’t many trilogies that can maintain the same high quality and keep its readers mesmerized throughout, but this is one of them.
