My Thoughts:
I fear 2018 did not end with a bang
I had a hard time reading this one, I never truly got into it. And I do feel that it borders on almost only ok. In the sense that it did not make me want to read more, in that aspect it is an ok rating, but, I just can not bring myself to it. The story and writing is still good. Just not good enough.

I do not root for anyone. If they all died I would not care. That is not good.

Damn, fine, FINE! It is a 2, sigh. I have to do it. If I do not want to read more than it clearly can not be a 3.

It felt like a filler.

Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but long-standing enmities dividing the Rhunes make it all but impossible to unite against the common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess renders them indistinguishable from gods?

The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feel nothing but disdain for both Fhrey and mankind. With time running out, Persephone leads the gifted young seer Suri, the Fhrey sorceress Arion, and a small band of misfits in a desperate search for aid--a quest that will take them into the darkest depths of Elan. There, an ancient adversary waits, as fearsome as it is deadly.

  4. Aw that's too bad. I think I started one of this authors books before too and it didn't grab me, sadly. Cool cover tho.

    Happy New Year!!

  5. awe love the snowman pic, sorry the book didn't make the cut. Happy New Year!

  6. I've also had my ups and downs with this series. This one I think I write was just "okay". So far, I guess I'm still enjoying the series, but it's nowhere as good as his Riyria Revelations.
