Top Customer Reviews
1) The writing style is completely different. True, given the length of time that has passed things are bound to sound a bit different, but this sounds as if it's being written by a ghost writer.
2) He didn't even get the details of previous novels correct. He has Ben Holiday reference the fact that he has never taken off the medallion. This was both confusing and enraging because that is the central plot of an entire previous novel in the series, when he gives the medallion to Abernathy so Questor can use it as a catalyst to change him back to a man again.
3) The characters had ridiculous, trite names. Laphroig? Shoopdiesel? Seriously?
4) There's a very obvious attempt to bring back or reference every single character that's ever been in the series, which is done in the worst and least subtle way possible. Going back to point 1), Edgewood Dirk and Strabo don't even have the same manner of speech as in previous novels.
5) Extremely obvious plot set ups. As soon as Misty gets back to Landover in chapter 1 Strabo flies down and tells her "not to ever use his image again or he'd personally appear there within minutes to punish her". Gee, could she possibly use that to get a powerful Dragon to come to her aid later in the novel?
I could go on, but I won't. Please save yourself the money and the sorrow and skip this. Read and love the previous five books, but avoid this and the last forthcoming instalment as well.
