My Musings:Rather disappointing sequel to the much loved A Promise of Fire. I was shocked by how much of a slog I found this to get through.
It felt as though the novel simply flitted from one boring and repetitive sex scene to the next. There was no tension or passion. It was as if the sex was a filler for the lack of plot.
I believe it was around 65% before I felt that anything truly worthwhile happened in the story, and then only in the last 15-20% where I was actually enjoying myself.
The ending was very action packed and interesting, and the only thing about this sequel that reminded me of what I loved about the first book. Unfortunately by the time the action started it was just too little too late for me.
Unsure if I will continue with this series. What a colossal letdown. 1.5/5
