must think more about ending stories properly!
on 11 October 2014
i liked the first 2 books in the series, but the third book felt very long, and the main characters just kept running around without adding much to the story. the main story theme was meant to be the search for the all powerful alien artifact, but that was left too late and went totally in a different(read boring) direction.
the main evil character keeps running around trying to be pure evil, but doesn't get any where. Louise is just sooo good that it becomes annoying and why someone like her who lived such a sheltered life, would go chasing after danger, instead of escaping with her sister, doesn't make much sense, and why a top secret organization is suddenly known to every tom dick and harry? the dead are so fixated on escaping the beyond they don't care where they end up(they should really have thought about where they will end up!).
Even al capon's just fizzles out. the main story ending is just very disappointing. i can't expand without spoiling the story, but after lots of pointing in one direction, through three very long books, the author just jumps the other way and finds an easy way to end the story, which is also a total over kill, i mean i doubt anyone saw that coming. very disappointing after a long and at times very entertaining read.
