Sea of Sequels
Two and a half stars. First in a series, and has a cliffhanger ending.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Science fiction yarn with your standard cast of characters on a quest. The exception may be the musician, but he is also a technical whiz. We do not learn enough about the hero's dark past. The girl who casts her lot with him is quite young.
I hoped that the strong female warrior was not the villain, but her change in alliance seemed too sudden. I kept picturing her as Catwoman.
The author slips up once in regard to the extra large insect. This creature does not understand gender, and is usually referred to as "it," but in one passage the author uses male pronouns for it.
Here there be smeerps. Gundir, anyone?
This book is entertaining enough, but when it comes to no conclusion, it seems artificially drawn out. I am not inclined to read 500-1000 more pages to see whether this shaggy dog story ever goes anywhere.
Teens who like fantasy or science fiction might enjoy this book and its sequels--there are at least four more books in the series.
