3rd installment in series becoming a little formulaic?
on 4 September 2013
Having read and enjoyed the 1st 2 books by the author i was looking forward to this 3rd book. Again the characters we know and love from the 1st 2 books are here and while this book provides a decent enough read, i felt like i was re reading the Dark Monk in parts.
The plot itself is quite interesting and i did enjoy the little twists as one of the characters meets an old foe but i also felt that some elements were lifted straight from Dark Monk, changed round a little and placed into this work.
Having said that, it must be quite difficult to keep on inventing new scenarios whilst developing a series involving the same lead players who are stuck in one time and region so i applaud the author for at least keeping it interesting. If you have not read the other books then this would probably be as good as the previous 2.
