did not like it
bookshelves: unfinished, fantasy

I just had to put this down, as much as it pains me to do so. I've always loved Tamora Pierce - she's been one of my favorite authors for as long as I can remember. I was just so thrown off by the huge time jump between the second and third book, and annoyed that there was no warning, that it kept bothering me throughout the entire time I read. Why skip so many years and such a valuable plot line? Why keep referencing it when it has no relevance to the current adventure? It just seems so useless.

I would have much rather either seen the story between Beka and her betrothed, or just had it left out completely and continued on this next adventure.

I'll be back to finish this one day, but probably not for quite a while.

Carrie Isn't that sad?! I'm just deciding now that I should probably give up on one of my favorite authors. I've been reading him due to loyalty and the fact that he wrote one of my favorite books, but I haven't really enjoyed one of his books in several years. I hope you like whatever you find at the library! I'm going today too.
