Read from April 16 to 25, 2012

Oh how I was disappointed! Cool cover, yes; tantalising blurb, yes; awesome story, no. Not only did I just dislike the story but the continual reference to King Arthur led nowhere. As an Arthurian nerd I was initially very excited at the prospect and how it all might eventuate but the author may as well have scrapped all the references for all the good they did, or relevance they had. Not only did they not enrich the story, it felt as though they were really forced and they didn't flow.

Basically, I was bored. If I was the type of person who could put down a book, this would have been one that I would take great pleasure in doing so. The sentence structure was terrible, the level of description was way too high and to top it all off, I didn't really understand what was happening.

No way no how I'm reading any of the sequels.
