    "Not All It Could Have Been"

    While I feel like this one has a more cohesive story than the second book in the series, it still ultimately falls quite a bit short of its potential. The first book in the series was quite good, especially up until the end, because it did a great job of introducing you to the world. This one stayed back in the land of more dime-a-dozen series tie-in novels.

    I really like the world of Eberron, because of its blend of fantasy and sci-fi. But I think in order to truly capitalize on that you would have to have a, epic fantasy series set in the world to establish a "main" plot-line. These kind of books that are turned out by the franchise are really just popcorn fantasies, and I'm sure they satisfy a big part of the market. But what I really want to find is a series like this that is truly written with the art of the story in mind. It doesn't have to be epic and the stakes don't have to be huge. That was what worked in the first book - we were just concerned with the fates of the four main character. By the end of this book, our heroes are trying to save the entire world just like every other cliche genre fantasy series out there. And it doesn't even sell it to the readers. As other reviewers have stated, the ending just falls apart because it doesn't really have much backbone to it.

    If it had been kept toned down, with a focus on characters and world-building, I would have been a lot more satisfied by this series.

    "Meh"

    What started as an excellent introduction to the realm of Eberron, quickly runs away and becomes so over the top that the story lost me.

    Combine that with a change in Narrator led me to abandon this book. Not that Brett Barry did a poor job once he got his bearings. This has a lot to do with the amazing job Alex Hyde-White did with the voices of the Warforged, and with the last book ending up in the middle of a conflict with the Warforged the "reader" is severely disoriented with the change.

    In the beginning of the book it was almost like listening to TTS rather than a narrator, though he adjusts a few chapters in the story is so grandiose in comparison to the first book that I lost interest.
