    "Interesting but slow story"

    The story of this is interesting but it starts out very slowly, and you spend the first half of the book waiting for the introduction of any characters you know from before. Many pivotal moments are waved over or explained away as having occurred in another time, and where many books discuss the how and why of things, this one just discusses what without any real deepening understanding of the world and how it works.

    I was entertained enough by the first book to keep going, but only because I had nothing better going at the time.
