I enjoyed Saga less than Epic - the characters seemed less likable and less real; the plot was at times watery and predictable by comparison with the first book. I found myself skipping over the Dark Queen's chapters altogether after a while - I found her somewhat tedious and annoying, not to mention confusing - and she rambled on about the same things. The writing seemed almost forced at times, like the author was writing just to write and not because he really believed in the story. Overall, I missed the very relatable feel of Epic (and the fantasy elements!).



Not to say Saga was terrible - it had its good points, for sure, and I liked it well enough - but I didn't find it nearly as good as the first book. Definitely a less compelling novel.
