Better than the last, but still has room for improvement.
on November 11, 2007
I've loved the Lord of Isles books since they were first released and have purchased and read each book as it came out in hard back. The last book (first in the ending triology) greatly disapointed me and I was hesitant to pick this one up but decided to give Drake another chance. This book was definitly better than the previous, and was MUCH easier to read (took me a week rather than two months), but the same anoying flaws exist. There still is more action than development. The characters are no more explained than in previous books and the rehashing of what we already know to be true is PAINFUL! Still the plot was better and flowed better than most of the previous novels so that I was compelled to keep reading until the end. I will buy the last installment though I am largely skeptical that the series could be wrapped up in one book. There is way too much still hanging out there.
