it was ok
Read from August 06 to 10, 2012

2.5 stars, as I liked this better than I remembering liking the other 2. I still had no investment in any park of the book - I didn't care about the characters or what happened to them. When they were in danger (which happens a number of times), I felt nothing. These books are like reading something really far away, or watching the TV when the sound is turned down so far you know it's on but you can't make anything out. When something in the book is actually important to the plot, I often don't realize until a couple of pages later and I have to flip back for clarification.

I did like the premise of this last book, but it rather ruins the experience of reading it when nothing seems important in the book. Oh, everyone is losing their magic? Ho-hum. Oh, the most dangerous magic EVAR needs to be defeated? Meh. Oh, the main character has been taken to be sold as a slave? Whatever, I'm sure they'll figure it out. You get the point.
