The novel is broken up into at least 4 books. I quit.
After buying 3 books to get to the end, I chose not to go on. The story about ancient Egyptians and GODS controlling time travel is fanciful. The suspense is well done, but finding the tall tale's end seems too full of twists and turns for my patience and limited budget.
I no longer care how this naíve child, Mari, ends up with her heart's desires fulfilled. Her lack knowledge of history become more and more unbelievable. As the adopted grandchild of an expert on ancient Egypt, the girl is pretty ignorant, if not stupid.
The author ignores the face that hiding in a dark, dusty room for over 36 hours without a bathroom break is totally ridiculous. Humans need to eliminate waste after a meal is digested.
Give yourself a break!
Aventurine is the third book in the Chalcedony Chronicles and, in my thoughts, the second best in the series. We get to see more of Logan, which was a big plus for me. I wanted to know more about this antagonist. I wanted to see him work. McMichael does a fairly good representation of what our antagonist is like and I was able to see his motivations clearly.
Unfortunately, that made me want to smack around Mari. As a character, she has changed from the first book. Which is what you want in a series. However, I feel she is going downhill instead of up. Mari is too trusting to Logan. Even though she goes through Ky's plans, she doesn't recognize the dangers Logan poses.
I feel the book was a good attempt at strengthening the story, but at the cost of Mari's personality. She lost some of that spark she had before meeting Seth. I understand that she needed to play a part, but even she seemed to believe that part quickly. It didn't just piss me off, it annoyed Ky too. Who, I may add, is a very sound voice in the last two books.
All in all, it was an okay book. Not my favorite, but better than the first.
I've dried most of my tears, refilled my drink, and am about to finish this wonder of time travel.
However, if you ignore these continuity issues it is still a good book. It's complicated reading as you have all the time travel and multiple lives for lots of the characters so sometimes it is a bit hard to keep things straight but this just adds to the enjoyment of this book as you have to keep your wits about you all the time.
The plot drags after a while and a couple of times I was ready to give up but thankfully I did not. Hopefully the next book has a bit more action and adventure in it.
Good writing and interesting world building. Well worth reading.
