I couldn't finish this book. I know that may make my opinion invalid to many, but I just couldn't.
It was infuriating the way the author changed the mannerisms of many of the characters, including their grasp on the English language. One of the more prominent supporting characters went from speaking like this in the second book: "Just because I am in union with you at the moment, it does not mean that I am delving into your innermost secrets, my sweet." to THIS in the fourth: "And if correct is the Bombay being, Being Clive? If led we are by secret Dungeonmasters, might they not also in strangeglowfireplace be?"
I just can't justify spending more time on a series whose multiple authors seem to have no respect for the work of those who came before them. Yes, I get that he wants to make her more alien, but maybe he should have considered that it's jarring for the reader to have such major changes take place in characters that they've grown fond of.
