Magic's Promise

Half boring, half melodrama
July 8th, 2013
As with the first installment of the series, most of the fast paced action takes place at the very end of the book. This time, however, rather than have Vanyel wine from the half of the book onwards, he does it cover to cover. The plot seems to circle around itself, like a snake waiting for the right moment to jump at you. So at times I found myself wondering if the book was going anywhere at all, only to find as I already said that the plot only took aim in the last quarter of the book. It was a better book than the first one, mainly because it was all not tired up to a bad love story. That was also one of the things I didn't like about it. Why couldn't Vanyel meet someone and be happy. I guess because then he can't wine about something. All I'm going to say is, I'm not reading the next book.
