The gods should have "died" sooner -- much sooner. The story was too predictable. I was predicting lines far too often.

The plot underlying this story has considerable potential. Unfortunately, the author's writing fell way short of delivering on this potential. There were many times that I almost quit this book. While some of the action was OK, the dialog was often tedious and, quite frankly, juvenile.

The narrator did a decent job with the material he had to work with. However, he lacked range in conveying the emotions of the characters. A little more prosody please.

I will not be purchasing Part 2 if this series.
