Really not a series I've enjoyed
on 26 July 2013
To be honest this is a series that I've not been a huge fan of, not because I've disliked the concept but purely because I really can't get on with the principle characters as I don't feel that I have an emotional link to them to care about their fates. Its tricky to read a book when this happens and when it's the same problem time and again throughout its something that really does leave you thinking that this author is not going to be for you.
That said, the story ideas are clever and the way that the author works on the pace does take it along at a reasonable rate so much so that there will be quite a few prepared to forgive the character defects to see what unfurls. Unfortunately I'm not one of them so whilst I will try the first book in a new series from this author it will be the last chance that Ian gets in my TBR pile.
