Having someone complain at you sound like a good way to spend an afternoon? Purchase this!
Unfunny, unwitty, unwanted. I expected much more from the brain behind the "words you cannot say on television" creator, who used to be such a unique voice.
This book manages to bring new insight into the well explored areas of high fantasy. Mages, prophecies, young people falling in love and slowly learning to trust. Jack Campbell explores these common themes by adding interesting twists: a industrial mystery, an interesting mythos of enmity between the "Mechanics" and the "Mages".
The reader uses good tones and voices to differentiate between characters but sometimes seems to overemphasise one character's emotions. As a counterpoint to the other, it works, but can be a bit rough.
Definitely worth it.
Working in a licensed universe can be difficult. However, Oliver Bowden has done a good job fleshing out and expanding on licensed characters. If you enjoyed the Assassin's Creed universe, then Bowden's work will make you love it more.
