A story about "The Hero Always Wins" — 9 weeks ago
A few of things:
1. the story is good. I mean it. It’s good. Lots of curveballs, lots of “WTF just happened” moments. I do like that.
2. the writing isn’t so great – but then, it doesn’t get in the way either, so I guess it’s passable. Some of it is a bit rushed, some of the descriptors aren’t working for my mind’s eye. I’m curious enough to know what happens next that I’m able to let it go, even if I’m grumbling a bit on the inside.
3. It is not a standalone but the first in a trilogy. TWOSEQUELS! One of which hasn’t even been published yet. If you’re like me and HATE not knowing what happens next, wait. I have book 2, but I might wait and read it when book 3 comes out because I can NOT stand this kind of indefinite suspense.
So – you’ve been warned.
