This review is from: The Petrovitch Trilogy: An omnibus edition (Kindle Edition)
There is no getting away from it, the first book is a cliched badly written mess with poor characterisation and terrible dialog.
Having said that things improve massively in the later books. The second book is flawed but decent, the third book is very good, and the newly released fourth book is excellent.
It is worth saying that there are some general flaws throughout the whole trilogy. One that began to grate with me was that Petrovich and his little gang are always in the key battles which didn't really make much sense. However these flaws don't detract too much from the overall trilogy.
Given all this I'd suggest anyone who has trouble getting into the series to give it a bit of time as its definitely turning into an excellent series.
