There are returning characters, new ones, new cults - Viridian Dawn step into the fold in Dark Harvest - and more I can't talk about for fear of spoiling the book.
In the well named Dark Harvest the world building continues to be good, tying in with Dionysus as the primary entity beautifully. All the different entities are still bringing their A game, like Amaterasu, and add something strong and purposeful each time. The author connects them to each story well and with such relatable detail that they contribute much to the series primary arc and the MC’s direction. The action is on point and more characters are joining the series in a way that is progressive without overwhelming the reader. Dustin’s search for his father continues and I feel that will be far more than he bargained for.
Because of the quality of the writing, because of my cheeky Sterling, because of the overall story, because of my continued interest in where this is all going and how it will eventually end, and especially because of the vividness of this world and its beings, the action, Dark Harvest gets a strong 4 Stars!
First of all, the author's writing style is superb, consistent without a flaw, and with a particular note of dry satire and black humour. I could not love his stories more. I wish a had the next book(s) immediately to continue. The characters created by this author are simply amazing, and I am not even referring to my beloved Dustin. All of the characters have their own strengths, flaws, and lovable sides, or superevil intentions. The author develops his world further and adds incredible dimensions and entities.
The story itself, continues several months after the ending of the previous book, and it immediately start off into a roller coaster of action and confrontations, with Dustin somehow always ending up in the middle of them, and some of the time seriously hurt. Fortunately, he is a very resilient character.
I don't think I can express with words how much I enjoyed this book, I just know that I got sucked into the story from page one and I didn't want it to end. This is truly an amazing series and I hope the author is planning many more books.
Reading order is Penumbra (Darkling Mage, #0), Shadow Magic (Darkling Mage, #1), and Dark Harvest (Darkling Mage, #2).
The author also repeated the same character arc from the first book, that being that the main character runs away and is useless in fights until he decides not to be.
Then we get to the villain. Not only is she non-theatening, but she also just appears out of no where. This speaks to the deeper problem with the series. This should be a mystery. Twice now the main character has to solve a mystery that threatens the world, but he doesn't solve anything. People just tell him the answers and then acts like he's an idiot. This is like calling the reader an idiot because we also have no way to figure anything out. There should be hints and foreshadowing, but instead we get the main character being knocked out for an entire day and when he wakes up his friends have already found the bad guys and is just waiting for the guy that's useless in a fight to fight people. The actual reason is so the readers can see the next scene.
I'm going to pass on the rest of the series and hope that, even though I'm not going to read it, the next book is better because I want the author to succeed and make good books. I've just lost interest in this series now
