Read in Water Witch. Some interesting holes in the rules for this world... ( )

Frustrating

Such an interesting world; such terrible writing.

It’s really not bad. The problem is it all tends to be one note. The banter flies so fast it can be a struggle to figure out who is speaking at times. But it’s almost passionless. The emotions come in small bursts that are too easily deflected with wittiness.

Then there is the over-explaining of future plans, most of which never come to fruition. Grandiose ADD nonsense babble that eats pages without advancing any plot or character development. It gets detailed about things that don’t matter at all and repetitive to an annoying level.

Worst of all, nothing happened. The whole plot involved one paragraph of action. A lot of threats (and one family quasi-brawl that was effectively a pillow fight) but the antagonists only appear in one scene and were summarily dealt with.

This series continues to deteriorate. Which is sad. The author has written much better.

This was vaguely amusing, but I really can’t recommend it. ( )
