The first book was okay - not great - but okay
Reviewed in the United States on September 11, 2017
The first book was okay - not great - but okay. This one is, well, readable. It feels unfocused, like the author wanted to include ideas from several genres, but never quite commits to any of them. Dialogue veers from military strategy to woo-woo things like, "If I'm patient, the universe will dance at my feet and provide the answer." Oy. There isn't tension to drive the action along largely because the characters don't offer much to keep the reader invested in them. It was worth a couple bucks for a light read, though.
