it was ok
Read from February 03 to September 18, 2012

It's all about expectations I suppose. This is a sequel to Golden Withchbreed which I stumbled upon as part of an EBay bulk sci-fi book buy (which is a great way to get lots of cheap Good Reads, by the way). I was surprised at how good the prequel was since the cover was kind of sappy looking and I had never heard of the author before. I really enjoyed the prequel, and sought out Ancient Light hoping for more of the same. Instead I got less of the same. The world had changed too much, unnecessarily, and the plot became very tedious and repetitive. Had I not expected so much more, I may have liked it better.
