    Huge Huggins Letdown

    Let me make this clear. I have enjoyed every other book by JBH that I have read - from 'The Reckoning' to 'Nightbringer' even though each one is basically the same formula told over and over again (hero with questionable faith vs. an unstoppable killer/creature). But he has always been able to breath a life into these characters that separated them enough from the previous book to make it enjoyable. He does not do this with 'The Sorcerer'. It's ho-hum from the beginning and only gets worse as it goes on. I know that JBH has always been a Christian fiction writer, but this book really drowns you in it. For the first time ever, I skipped pages because it just went on about God and Moses and blah, blah, blah. And the action sequences? They pale in comparison to previous books. It seems like he had to slap something together to make his deadline and 'The Sorcerer' is the end result. Am I being too harsh - no. I think that JBH is a good writer with a great ability for producing Christian themed stories that don't resort to clubbing you over the head with the fact that they are Christian. I am disappointed. I truly hope that this is not the road that his future releases will travel.
