It was an okay read but my review disclaimer is that books that end with cliffhangers receive an auto star reduction because they contain an incomplete story. I don't require a HEA and will settle for a HFN. But cliffhangers??? They just suck the interest right out of a story (series) for me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This story was chock full of characters with diverse personality traits. Good in one respect because it kept the story interesting but bad in that it got overwhelming at times with all the people popping in throughout the story. I understand that they were essential to the plot but the story took on a chaotic dimension because of it. The subplots were complex but frustrating, especially as I reached the end of the story and spied no resolution because of the dreaded cliffhanger. And although the story was funny at times, there were many times when the humor felt contrived ("Grack" was one such instance and Cimil's almost excessive hijinks was another). The all-too-prevalent sarcastic quips, retorts, and banal humor ceased having entertainment value after a while.
All in all Sun God Seeks...Surrogate? wasn't a bad story...I just gained more enjoyment from the first two books in the series. I'm crossing my fingers that the next book will feel a bit more fluid and answer some of the unanswered questions that remained in this one.
