A strong story well above average of most in the genre. Though the plot is a familiar one there are some creative twists that make this series worth buying. Well written and thoroughly enjoying, Mr. Anderson takes a recognizable world and adds strife that changes things up. He depicts characters that are easy to love or hate and develops them nicely.
The continuing development of the characters in the story who begin to grasp what they're truly capable of with the aid of some new additions to the story enrich the reading or listening experience in this third book. Mr. Anderson adds layers of intrigue that complicate the relationships of some of the main characters.
I have not been impressed with Mr. Perkins portrayal of the characters, specifically the female characters.
This book three brought the story home for me. Everything I was nervous about the story was addressed, and everything I didn't really like about the first book was put to rest.
Indeed, I see now that the story actually grows with the character. Brilliant.
I'm loving this series. Good story a hero you want to cheer for and some of the smoothest talking evil doers around. A true fantasy series molded in the essence of old Greek mythology.
If you have read the other three books, then you know that the story line may have weak points but it captivates you so much that you have to know what happens next.
I personally like the fact that there isn't just one hero in this series but several people stepping up to work together. the females are strong and are interesting character backgrounds.
