By half way through the second book of the series, the frequent portrayals of rape and incest in a positive light overshadowed the interesting parts of the story. The author seemed obsessed with sex and returned to it frequently.
There are definitely new tricks to storytelling that I've never encountered with this GREAT series!!! I've plowed through the first two books in less than a month and plan of devouring the third as quick as possible!
So awesome!! Can't wait for the next in the series. the store and the seeker where increadable.
Didn't need to spend 10 hours on jardeers (spelling) history. I hope the series doesn't continue to do this with other characters; telling the same series of events in painstaking detail in someone news perspective.
The narrator did a great job.
this sequel focused heavily on the relationship between characters, it was great seeing what each one felt in their own perspective. however it felt like a little fantasy/erotica during most of it.
the reader and less pauses would have helped
I am the reader is not any better and the repeat of the last of the middle of the book was not needed.
the reader and his pauses were most disappointing
I loved The Warded Man--rushed right through it--but this one is painful. I'm only in Chapter 4 and struggling with all the "creative naming" of everyday items and concepts. I recognize that he's creating a new world but it would be much friendlier (to me) if more of the names of things/demons/concepts, etc., were in "normal" language. This is a chore, rather than enjoyment, but I'm holding on and hoping The Warded Man characters appear sooner, rather than later. Fingers crossed. (Maybe the book would be friendlier if read rather than listened to.)
