Cauldron (Academy - Book 6): Academy - Book 6

2.0 out of 5 stars poor effort, 15 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed. Should have been a great finale bringing the threads together but it is slow plodding lots of pointless narrative, lacks any action, no real resolution of the saga and all the good stuff from the first couple in the series is absent . Very disappointing

It's not the most innovative or literary of books but apart from a slight dragging out of ' getting' there and being a bit hurried in the final chapters it is highly readable with characters you can care about and enough intrigue to keep you interested in more. Sets up quite well for a sequel

2.0 out of 5 stars I have no idea what I just read?, 21 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Firefall (Kindle Edition)
the first of these two books is decent, baffling at times due to overly thought out metaphorical descriptions but still a decent first contact. yarn. Perhaps a little more of a hint for the reader as to what is actually going on rather than the constant lost and confused hero. The second one though. Honestly I have no idea what it was about, who won, what the meaning was, if any. The glimpses of clarity are squeezed between incoherence and rambling which only induces bafflement. I did enjoy it.. Did I? I don't know. Perhaps I'm too unaugmented to comprehend. Can anyone explain it to me please?

3.0 out of 5 stars lots of potential but a lack of coherence, 28 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Proxima (Kindle Edition)
There are some nice ideas here but what starts a quite a well written tight plot, becomes an meandering unfocused behemoth with many tendrils of the story left underdeveloped and in the end I am not convinced SB knew what he wanted this to be about. The individuals stories? no the characters are all too shallow. The conflict in rival political theories? No, not enough articulation. The technology? Too many unresolved ideas. The planet? He seems to have got bored with that. The 'trilogy?' Probably, but he has not done enough to tease me that I want to know the bigger, deeper story, or care enough about these characters or this 'universe' to make sure it is on my must read list.

A brilliant book - well written, emotive, intelligent, articulate, thought provoking and a thumping good thrill ride of a plot.
