Well, not much has happened with the overall plot of this series. Jinx the pixie is still as funny as ever, and is probably the smartest character but Rachel and Ivy are still not very bright or mature and make bad dating choices. Rachel still refuses to kill monsters that are threatening her friends and killing people. If she simply bought a sniper rifle her life would be much, much easier. There was actually an interesting plot in previous books involving the history of witches, elves and demons which the author pretty much ignores in favor of introducing a not very scary monster that nobody thinks to simply shoot! This series started ok, but really needs a some character development, and some more exciting plots. This series is still an ok filler between books from more talented modern fantasy authors like Charlaine Harrison, and Jim Butcher.
Oh boy, lots of good listens, this is probably in the top 20 though, not quite as good as Changes, but Harry once again manages to persevere in the face of overwhelming odds, with some unexpected twists.
Harry Dresden as usual, my favorite hero among current modern urban pulp fiction. The narrator is consistent and changes voices, ect. Not complaints there.
Well. . . Jim Butcher has managed to write my favorite modern urban fantasy fiction. Just so many likable characters, drawing from various mythologies and while not free of cliches he is good at character development and manages to mix humor while pulling my heart strings so I really care about the characters. There's a bit of "I've got to save the world again", but it's handled well, and it's not too easy to predict the outcome. I hope this series continues well a bit longer, it takes some talent to write so many books wihtout becoming to repetitive.
Brandon Sanderson did a great job finishing this series. While not quite the same as Robert Jordan, I think he did as well as any author could be expected to do when finishing another's series. A satisfying conclusion to a series that was stretched out a bit too long. I think Sanderson is a bit better at female characters than Jordan too. They just seem a bit more realistic.
Wow, tough call, but all the story arcs were tied off pretty well. The author's spent some time thinking about human nature, and the ending wasn't quite what I expected. I just don't want to give any serious spoilers, but it was well worth the read,
Minor Spoiler alert: The way Rand Al Thor went through various possible futures while he battled the Dark One. As they took turns exploring possible futures and arguing about what was best.
Just be warned a lot of characters you may have liked do get killed off during the final battle.
The main character David Wong, because of entertaining monologues on the human condition.
Different voices for all the characters, and better than I would imagine, lol.
Yes, hard to put down.
Not quite as creative as the first one in the series, though it is easier to follow and not as strange.
If you liked the "Name of The Wind" you should like this. Perhaps to long, slow and detailed for some, but great writing, original story, and great, detailed characters. The narrator is great at the various voices too. One of the best epic fantasy series I've read. I look forward to the next book in the series even if it's a few years off.
