OK but not spectacular
on 27 March 2014
I have to agree with a previous reviewer and say I won't be reading the later books in the series, because I just don't care about what happens next. One of the characters in the book says at one point, 'I'm just not sure what we're doing here' (I paraphrase, that's not a direct quote!) and to be honest, I agree with him. it's a book that's just ambling along with no direction or overarching story and it left me with a feeling of 'meh'.
Grammar, spelling, all that sort of thing is good. I regularly read fantasy of all sorts, so the other worlds things isn't throwing me, but the upshot is, I just didn't give a damn about what was happening, what was going to happen or what had happened in the past. Even the Big Reveal thing didn't interest me. I didn't see it coming, but only because I couldn't be bothered looking.
Like the previous reviewer, this book was free to me as well, so I'm not too put out and it obviously appeals to some readers, but not to me.
