This is the third book in the series, Kings and Sorcerers, and I’m halfway through. This is also the first series of books I've read by Morgan Rice. Her writing may be better than this book reflects, but I can only go on what I see and read. In general, the topic is great, but the writing is okay.
First, I often must reread sentences and I find annoying spelling, grammar, and typo errors that disengage my interest in what I'm reading. If it happened once or twice, I would not mention it, but the editor of this book should be ashamed. Interestingly, it seems to have gotten worse with each book, as if she was in a hurry to get it to the publisher.
Second, the characters are not as well developed as they could be, which takes away from the overall storyline. There are too many side stories to keep the main character interesting and engaging. The story unravels a bit as a result, and I find myself losing interest. I liken this to TV series’ that go four months in between seasons. By the time they come back, I’ve lost interest and moved on to another program.
Regardless, I like the topic, and I hope her writing will get better with time. I will read the rest of the series, as I like to get the whole story, but I also read other books at the same time, and they are a bit more engaging.
