With each passing book in the series, Stirling seems to add more and more description for no other reason than to write the words. How many ways can you describe a glade, an outfit, etc. Ughhh... it is exhausting. The story starts a glacial pace, spurts briefly, then slows again, including an ridiculously long "dream sequence" that takes forever to get to the point. I came close more than once to putting it down and calling it quits, but I have invested a lot in the story and had to see where it went, however slowly it may have moved.

I have loved this series but as other reviewers have stated, it is getting repetitive and nothing is happening.  This book and the previous book cover the same material  over and over again.  When I realized I had reached the end of this book I had a, "but nothing happened!" moment.  The series deserves a better end than this slow boring winding down.

This series has gone downhill fast. Most of the book is just one giant recap of the last 8. What a waste of time. I feel like the author is just milking what was a great story line to just squeeze one more out.

I love these books, and will probably keep reading them, just to find out how it ends. My complaint is that they are getting so caught up in little details and you finish the book with the feeling that nothing has happened. Come on, Stirling! Don't be like Jordan and die before you tell us the end, or make me wish that the next book was by Brian Sanderson, just so things will get moving again.

It was really fun for the first 5 books but has gone downhill from there, Repetative and boring. Too descriptive of scenes and just not much going on in the rest of the books. I felt auther was out of fresh ideas and just wanted to cash in on the first few books and I got duped into buying them based on the first 5. Tell the author future reads by him are not likely for me..

Love the series and have put my name down for the next one. I missed the first two so will return to read them later. They are written with a lot of detail; Mr Stirling appears to have researched all the subjects and covers controversial subjects without making judgements. great read even as a standalone book. Sometimes when recapping an old event, which I remember, but he is writing for people who haven't read the previous books; could he put the text in a different font? so that the memory could be missed without missing any important detail?
