It seems when an author begins to run out of gas in keeping his main character and central story the main focus of his books, he gives secondary characters major POVs with side stories. This book was like reading 3 short stories and they were repeatedly interrupted by each other competing to get your attention. Like the previous book Hunted, there was a lot of hum-drum, uninteresting fill activities by the characters.

I don't understand why Hearn did not elaborate more on the new character Owen's first time experiences with the modern world but there was almost nothing of his reactions.  It could have been very funny.  

Another problem I had was with the mixed tenses as in first person present and first person past.  It was awkward reading.

Hearn still has not honed the skill of writing effectively in the female view, nor of giving his words the strong emotions that would transfer to the reader.  I should have been teary eyed in a couple of places but I wasn't .

The end chapters with a battle scene was good and the story should have ended there, but there is an epilogue that dangles a carrot to entice us to want the next book. Due to my disappointment with both Hunted and Shattered, the dangling carrot isn't very enticing..

    Cluttered

    Good read, but the changeing perspectives hurt the overall story I thought.
