I might think about another book from this duo. Her first 3 books of the series were enjoyable! Nick did a great job bringing the characters to life.
Not given up on this series after book 3. If feels like her heart just wasn't in the last 2 books of this series, like she had already moved on and just wanted to get this over with. I wouldn't be surprised if she had hired a ghost writer to finish with the instruction: "Just get it done, whatever. I don't care."
No, I haven't yet. I would consider it though, as he did great with this series.
It was extremely disappointing!!! Even more so than book 4.
I just can't believe that Lackey gave up on this series so easily. It was so terrible in the end that I won't even consider letting my kids start this series. They only have so much time and I don't want them wasting it on these books.
A new plot line, new writing, new ideas for books 4 & 5. As they stand now, they are terrible.
Not given up on this series part way through. It feels as if she was tired of dealing with these characters and just wanted to end it. Using flashbacks to fill most of the story is a copout.
Nick gave a solid performance. All voices and characters were spot on with the other books. Just feel sorry for him because he had to give up so much of his time on a sagging story.
After 3 great books in this series, it feels like either Lackey just lost interest in writting this story, or she hired a ghost writer to finish the last 2 books without understanding the characters and their subleties. I should have finished reading after book 3 and made up my own ending - it would have been much more satisfying and less detached from the beginnings. Terrible.
