OK but not the best out there
on 30 March 2012
Having neither truly loved nor hated the previous book I wanted to give Charmfall a fair crack of the whip, so having been lucky enough to have recently finished Firespell, I thought that I'd crack on with this one and see what it did for me as a reader. Sadly it left me with the same impressions as the original and whilst its certainly not the worst out there its pretty mediocre as the world hasn't increased and the characters sadly didn't get the opportunity to grow which will keep a lot of the readers with no attachments and therefore the Emo reaction to what befalls them.
Don't get me wrong, there will be people out there that love this, but for me with no character growth and a pace that struggles to get going, it was a real struggle to make my way through. A great shame all in.
