did not like it

(continued from the review of the prequel, "City Infernal") . . . that Edward Lee set out to write two books that follow the quest story format without the skills to fulfill this calling. This is a go-fetch story populated by thick heads that couldn't electrocute themselves if you paid them to. Here, let's go get that shiny penny on the sidewalk in front of you and save the world! Ok . . . but where is it?

But the most grievous of sins that Lee commits in this book is to describe something cool, build it up in the narrative . . . and then refer to it in passing after it's happened! Seriously, some goon says "Oh yeah it was cool when - " and that is it! As if he didn't even believe in his own ideas.

Lee writes much better than this - check out "Slither" and see for yourself.
