Where it lost me however was about halfway, when it kept jumping back to the protagonist's past Greek life. All very nice and interesting, but I didn't get a sense of how that man became the man we see in "modern" times. Maybe that'll get developed in later novels, but in this novel, it felt like 2 separate people with only tenuous link between those two characters. The secondary characters introduced In the second half of the novel don't fare so well unfortunately, and they remain very shallow with unclear motivations and characterisation. The supposed climactic combat scene at the end is very much an anticlimax. The combat planning lacks any sense of military knowledge, for one that is supposed to have military professionals in both sides, and the actual combat consists of basically "throw troops at the enemy" with no attempt at any tactics whatsoever. As such, it boiled down to a story-driven ending, e.g. "there was a hard fight. How hard? Erm, really hard.
People died. Who? Erm, some people.
But the heroes won. How? Erm, they just did alright? Take my word for it."
In summary, interesting premise, good setup, good writing in general, but let down by the second half of the novel and a story-driven, anticlimactic ending.
I had to give up on Titans after 80 pages. There was no story that I could discern, and at times it seemed as though the author was in on a private joke that was never going to be shared, or it was one of those "you had to be there " moments.
I have only just stopped reading as far as I can and cannot remember a single character.
I have only given it one star because you can't give none, good job it was free, as I would be regretting paying for it.
Sorry to be unkind, but I like to be able to not put down a book rather than dread to pick it up.
I suppose the biggest problem was that many chapters tended to be stand alone. Opportunities to expand characters were present, but not taken - why was Go so popular? Did I miss that paragraph - why did Jai do what she did? A shame really that these missed opportunities happened.
The ending was another of these "and with one bound they were free" . . . but did leave enough loose ends for another book, so well done on not trying to finish everything in 1 page, like many others do!
This is worth sticking with to the end. So enjoy!
