I must be getting overly picky. It's not that this book was terrible, it's just that it wasn't that good, and I have a lot of books with a lot more po..Show More »tential in my library.
I used to think that a great narration could save any book, but that no longer seems to be the case. Luke Daniels does a good job as always... but it was perhaps too good. I thought the main character was an arrogant jackass, and Daniels made him even more so.
I had a hard time putting my finger on what bothered me about this book, and the best description I can come up with is that it was watery. The dialogue sloshed back and forth with empty banter, and the language was over-the-top flowery. I realize this was an attempt at world building and style, but it came off as awkward and unnatural.

This book has the same reader as the first book but he is better here, especially when portraying other than the main character. It's almost like the light went on when reading this one and he does a great job.
I liked the first book in this series but this one is better in every way. After reading the first, I wanted to read this one. After this one, I MUST read the next one!
I feel this book didn't get much attention from the author. Like he was sorta done with this series.

Ugh, I'm glad I finished the trilogy but it was not the ending I was hoping for.
