Great story, but way too much waffle
on 2 July 2015
Having struggled through the rather basic prose and dialog of book 1 I continued, not expecting too much. I listened to the audio version and ended up playing this as double speed, I wanted the hear the story, which I'm enjoying, but didn't want to waste too much time getting through it. The characters spend so much time on useless speculation and guessing what the enemy might be doing, some of it completely ridiculous, that I found myself shouting at the book at times, to just get on with the story. The whole side story of Prince Henry and the royal family was actually annoying.
