2.0 out of 5 stars The difficult second chapter, 3 Aug. 2007
This review is from: The Dark River (The Fourth Realm Trilogy) (Hardcover)
After reading reviews on here a couple of days ago, there were only two and they were both far from my point of view, so came on today to give a summary of my thoughts. However, C. Green "happily low brow"'s review pretty much sums up everything I was going to say. It starts off great, with a rather brutal and callous massacre scene by the Bretheren, however this is really the high light of the whole book. The whole 'Free Running' side of the story is very naive and incredibly under-researched, the 'love story' aspects of this chapter are also an unwelcome addition. It also feels that some of the ideas of how the Tabula are keeping tabs on the public are a little forced, and Mr Twelve Hawks has just thrown them in there at every oppertunity to make a point. It's a real shame because I loved 'The Traveler', I thought it captured some great modern day theories of paranoia and was nicely mixed with some of the less extra-ordinary ideas from popular Science Fiction. It's unfortunate that it hasn't carried over to this book and I just hope that the trilogy manages to redeem itself in the final chapter and doesn't make an over complicated mess of itself like the movie trilogy of The Matrix.
