Nothing specialI am getting sick of the hype been given to average tales This is one them I have gone as far as I intend to with series It weaves a reasonable story line But is predictable half way through I was ready for the end. Once a decent book that sparks the imagination Whilst it is somewhat limited in it s scope there s nothing really wrong with that if the characters are interesting enough and in this case, barring the main character who can be somewhat difficult to like, the rest of them are decent well written characters whom I found myself rooting for One of the main problems this book has in my opinion is with regards to the passage of time, the characters seem to cover a great deal of ground in remarkably short periods of time and so things sometimes end up feeling rushed.Now, the elephant in the room, the sex scenes They are a problem They are a little too frequent and somewhat crudely done, in fact sometimes it seemed downright juvenile, however by the end of the book there you do leave with some context to frame it all There is also a plot line that has been spanning the last three books that frankly make it seem like it s been going on forever by the time the author makes any attempt to resolve it At the end of the book the author rounds everything off with a good set piece and a decent twist, that while not wholly unexpected was well done and might have just contributed to that third star.All in all a decent read, with a sometimes ponderous plot that should keep you entertained for the time it takes to read the book Not the kind of thing you ll remember in years time though.
