I thought this series had everything: mystery, action, intrigue, and strong characters. I couldn't have been more wrong. Solomon's Jar is full of action, and that is it. There is a plot, but it is so thin it can barely be considered a plot. Solomon's Jar surfaces, the main character goes to find it and keep it safe. Along the way people try to kill her. That's it. No mystery about ancient civilizations, no character growth, just one long chase scene. I was bored from the first 5 page long action sequence. Beating up bad guys is not enough to make a novel, not by a long shot, and I am extremely disappointed after loving the first book so much. This novel just feels like a cheap imitation of Destiny. Actually, it barely even feels like the same series. I see that there are more books in the series, but I will not give it another chance.
