The world building is fantastic. I can’t stop reading this.
Boring, repetitive, underwhelming
It feels like he stretches a three page short story to over three hundred pages, over explaining painstakingly mundane concepts over and over again. The characters have absolutely no chemistry and manage to not grow any more powerful no matter how many powers they aquire. There are little to no demonstrations of these powers, just constant talk about how powerful they are supposed to be. While the main characters are joined to the powers of eight ancient beings, plus each other, plus another ancient being who is the embodiment of a whole line of powerful women, plus the powers given to them by the current most powerful women, they still cannot overcome a witch. The whole book was a more boring, repetitious version of the first book, which in itself was okay. The author has an interesting concept just not the writing talent to bring it to fruition. This book was so irritating to read. The “romance” is laughable and dry. The characters seem to have no interest in one another until suddenly one makes a declaration that comes from nowhere then it returns back to whever it was. The author does a poor job of describing their growing feelings in that he doesn’t even try. They could be brother and sister as far as we know until suddenly “he is her world and she can’t ever lose him”. The only thing that would make this book make sense is if a fith grader wrote it. I never write reviews but this was such a horrifically, irritating waste of my time that I had to warn you. I wish someone would have warned me. I want my money back.
