Audio book: Joe Manganiello once again does a fine job without really adding or subtracting from the story.
After finishing Dragon Bones I was left with some lingering questions and looking forward to this book. For some reason this story wasn't as much fun. It's hard to put my finger on exactly why.
My best guess is the pacing. For such a short book, it felt like the plot meandered too much on unimportant details. The beginning was strong. It pulled me right back in again, and I thought everything was good to go. But then it got slow in middle, and felt sort of rushed at the end. I was sort of underwhelmed by the final confrontation especially.
I guess since I wasn't having as much fun with the story this go around and it made the quality of the writing more noticeable. I'm not one to spend much time commenting on the writing too much. I tend to leave that for English teachers/literary types.
I care a lot more about story and character development than I do about how elegant the prose are. If you're entertaining me, I'm not going to notice bad sentence structure/dialogue.
If I had to sum this book up with one sentence it would be "Hurog means Dragon." Why you ask? Well because it's said at least once per chapter. Often more than once. Or at least that's how it felt. Eventually I groaned every time another character said it.
I wonder if the writing was just as bad in the first book and I didn't notice. "Hurog means dragon" was said a few times in that book as well, but it didn't seem nearly so frequent. I didn't really find the dialogue or prose that bad.
Glancing over other reviews it seems like I may be in the minority. It's quite possible that if you liked the first book, you may enjoy this as well, but I mostly found it to a disappointing sequel.
