Getting worse

The previous instalment, the one based on H. P. Lovecraft’s works, was, shall we say, a little less believable than an average superhero movie, but at least it was a page turner where the story flowed naturally and the characters didn’t (for the most part) act out of character.
This one is different: wordy and boring, the story forced and fragmented, the characters without character, and the ending rushed and inconclusive.
I have already bought the fourth one—out of sheer curiosity: can it get even worse? But I sincerely hope there won’t be a fifth instalment: it’s time for the Jedi to end.
P.S. I wish the author didn’t add his Author’s Notes at the end: a rule living in the lake Chad area, who also controls Tigris and Euphrates? Seriously? It’s 21st century out there, for God’s sake: use Wikipedia and Google maps. And Alexander the Great was, like, 600 years dead in the 3d century AD (did the author mean BC?) And so on.
