    Story
    "Cliff Hanger. Unoriginal setting."

    Cliff hangers are noxious. Tolkien's format is better. Frodo is stung by Shelob and is dead. A contemporary cliff hanger would end there. But Tolkien built the suspense as Sam tries to continue the quest and overhears orc soldiers talking. It end's with Frodo captured and Sam covertly infiltrating the enemy stronghold. It ends on hope. The reader is left with hopeful anticipation awaiting the next book. Alliance ends with almost complete defeat.

    Secondly, the background is becoming overworked in contemporary novels: the majority of the world is clueless, the world world is in jeopardy and the bad guys are better organized, more persistent, and have greater numbers and resources. Frost's first book was better balanced with small assists from marginal characters like Nondo. Alliance draws too heavily on the strengths of the first book: character development and social interaction. An excellent narrator helps too.

    Story
    "Eh..."

    Alliance was good, but it's like Mark gave us all the meat and no potatoes. Everything that happened was interesting, but hardly anything actually happened. You just learned a lot about the 5 and then the Knights. But it was also like he just wrote off everybody else from book one. I guess the best way to differentiate between book 1 and 2, is that while 1 dragged on at times, but it carried a lot of weight. While 2 was all excitement, but had no weight to it. I hope 3 is a happy medium.
