Keylin doesn't reach a higher level of maturity with each book. Her feats are never acknowledged by the other characters and too much time is spent on theories and not enough on action.
With reservations. The novella was great and the next two were good, but after that the format just addressed another emergency without any growth.
There is hardly any romance. Just statements of love....boring
Bring back the excitement and wonder of the first several books.
I agree with a previous reviewer who likened this to chick lit. It has all the basic Grisham components, but feels like it was written by a ghost writer who lacks the finesse and power of Grisham's earlier writing. We have a great cause, fighters for the cause, some significant tragedy and no particular resolution. A wimpy heroine who is frequently described as brilliant never seems to express that intelligence in her behavior. Nora Roberts fans would like this, but it is disappointing from John Grisham.
The world was creative and the characters distinctive
I don't usually pay much attention to the narration when it works. This narrator had the accent of the American south. Completely at odds with an exotic location. In addition, she mispronounced words. I cringed a lot listening to her.
Martha Wells creates interesting worlds and characters. She needs a different narrator for this one.
No. I liked the premise of the first and the variation of the second, but this one just rehashes old ideas
I've read almost all of her books and this is the first one that bored me
I am a new audible book buyer - only 8 or 9 so far - and I guess I thought they were all good. This is the first time I've encountered such a bad reader. 10 minutes in and I'm already tired of hearing her swallow. Just listened to another book with southern accents that was fine. These accents are cloying and annoying. I won't buy another book narrated by this person.
