Top critical review
Reasonable entry in solid series.
on 9 May 2017
I quiet like the series, and have plouged through a book a day for last 6 days with this being my latest read.
On one hand the formula is not too different to prior books, but we see a bit of a slow down in pace and change. From all out action as prior, we get more underlying details revealed about people with who Harry has various relationships with, its a nice and refreshing change.
As a character, Harry does however tend to grate me the wrong way somewhat and in this book we see a lot of that. He act's so self riotous when he is no saint him self. Additionally all of his interactions with everyone aside from Murphy just seem to be getting angry and making snappy or sarcastic comments. Now I get that is his persona really and these books are not as deep on character's as other books, but he just feels too shallow for me at times.
My other flaw is the pacing seems off point, like some of the other titles, the beginning and middle seem decent in length, if not somewhat padded, but the end is just too quick.
In all its not an amazing book, but solid. Not the best in the series so far, but a nice way to whittle away the hours, for that it gets 3 stars wit ne each lost for pacing and the lack of depth to Harry.
