Again, very choppy overall. My hope of discovering something was disappointed by the average to poor writing and disjointed reading experience. One would think two people could keep each other interesting but maybe the converse holds true. This genre seems to suffer from inbreeding. It's chock full of aspiring writers who consider themselves expert because they've read luminaries. They then strive to be writers, the drive is out of ambition, and they end up criticizing each other into monotony. Les Mediocres remain peripheral to talent as long as they spend too much time picking apart each other and the craft. The question that addresses the problem may be, where are the editors who keep this level of blah from congesting the shelves. I suppose it's all right that the sentences and puctuation are correct if you just want to engage your mind like being on a treadmill, ending up nowhere.

Glad I didn't start the MageWorlds with this book; it seems disjointed and vague, like the authors knew they wanted to write a book but didn't know where it should go. Especially sad was the authors' need to explain stuff beforehand in a preface. This book is OK for MageWorld fans but it sure doesn't have the same character magic the original books have.

This book is like a patchwork quilt with the seams way too obvious and disratcing. It was cobbled together, forced, lacking spark. Stick to the greats.
