And that is a pattern. What a person reading this review might not know (but should) is that Amazon allows authors to make their books available to Amazon Prime members for free. The authors then get paid for each page of the book that is read. What I noticed in the other two epic series and in this one is that the books have a ton of wasted exposition included. The stories drag with people pontificating on things that do not matter, or in repetitive scenes where we have to read the same interactions from multiple perspectives.
I don't like this. Right now my top series has to be Jerry Boyd's "Bob and Nikki" series, which has lasted more than 12 books, but which is constantly changing with new characters and new situations. There is some repetition, but its more in the jokes that have become running gags over the course of the series. However, this epic series doesn't have the tight focus and narrow plot. The plot meanders constantly, but the characters don't get defined well even if they are getting a lot of page time.
it's frustrating for me to read, and I realized as I read this book that I can't keep forcing myself to plow through books that are written for page count and to generate multiple sequels. This story didn't really end as the end of book 1, and it was worse in book 2 when it came to tying up plot threads before pouring more plot into an already toxic stew.
This is a very low 3 for me. It's competently proofread and put together, but I ended up disliking the plot, so while I can't say its a "bad book", it wasn't for me and honestly, I recommend that you not pick up this series. Epic needs to be about the expanse of the world being written about, not about the page count.
A very lazy effort by the author overall. Word count and quality are not necessarily tied to each other, and this greedy author doesn’t seem to be aware of this basic fact.
Strongly recommend against wasting your time and money on this series.
I’ve only ever quit one book before in my life and book #2 in this series was the second. I got through 90% of it and am quitting the series. The entire first half of the second book is all explaining and exaggerating how beautiful and detailed all the features of a special city were. At one point, the author takes forever explaining how the main character sees a painting more beautiful than anything else he had seen yet, but doesn’t even say what the painting is of.
The first book showed potential for an interesting story, but the second book is so terrible, I’m giving up on the story’s ending. It’s embarrassing for Kindle that these books average such a high rating.
