Starting to feel drawn-out, but still worth reading.

It’s been a while since I returned to this series, and maybe that’s why, but the storyline is starting to feel drawn-out and overstretched. While I still enjoy the characters, I found my mind drifting and wandering more often than not. And the logic behind the whole “sub” mission felt farfetched and difficult to believe. I realize this is fantasy, so suspension of belief is expected to a degree, but there’s still probability and physicality that should be maintained. I didn’t dislike the story, but I did get bored with it and had to walk away to read other books before returning. Which I did; came back and finished it. While my expectations for book 5 were not met, I did quite enjoy the ending. (Once the story went past the whole “sub” known as “terror” part–no joke, that’s what it was named.) I plan to read the 6th and final book of this series since I’ve stuck with it so far. I want to know the conclusion. Just hoping the pacing improves and the story advances more quickly in the finale.
