I really wanted to enjoy this book, and I even read the entire 496 pages in hopes of wanting to continue to the next book in the series, but neither of those things happened.

It’s not a bad book, and the story premise is interesting enough. It’s just that the thing was so s l o w. Stuff was always happening and the plot was always moving forward, but it felt like I was struggling to keep going.

So, despite my library having the second book in the (as yet unfinished) trilogy, I won’t be picking it up. I will, however, give his first novel a try some time (my library also has this one). Maybe it’s only this story of his that didn’t work for me.
