Most of the book is an information dump. We are told about the main characters's intelligence, problem solving ability, fighting ability, skill with languages, and all around awesomeness, but we never see it.
Without her trusty companion, the female version of Data, our main character would never figure out what was going on. All problems are resolved without her intervention, most of the time while she is passed out. How often is she asleep? She falls off a cliff, is injured and passes out for her first contact with the natives, meets her magically linked lover while passed out, is injured when her lover and friends meet and ends up in bed to recover, eats bad fruit and has to be rescued because she passed out and got stuck in a tree, returns home from another dimension and sleeps for a few days, and then quantum leaps back to her birth dimension, and wakes up from a recovering rest to war that started while she was passed out. We get another magically induced information dump that explains some motivations for what has been going to to this point, and then the book ends. I'm just going to assume she passed out again. Sensing a theme? She may be able to fight, but we never see it. We are told about her skill with languages, but she magically learns new languages through the power of lust. We can plainly read that she has a unique way of speaking, and yet, we are beat over the head with the fact that it isn't the norm.
This character was given everything she needed to be strong, and still comes across as someone who only reacts to situations that happen to her. The information dumping is so rampant that every conversation feels like an online dating profile that advertises traits and past history. There is no getting to know and identify with the characters because everything stays at the profile depth. For the next book, at least give this character a chance. Please leave her awake during a transition moment. Please make her contribute to her surrounding instead of being a placeholder that just agrees to ideas that other people bring up.
The only reason I finished this book was because of all the other good reviews. I'm glad the author has loyal fans. I would like to be one too, but that just isn't going to happen with this book.
The book is OK. It's not one I will read again, and probably would not go to the author for another book. Really don't think it's worth the money that is being asked now. Your MMV.
A fun work to read it has a bit of a 'Hell-Boy' feel to it as you discover Iax is not from Earth to begin with, at least not the one in this dimension. Though she is competent to the point of over confidence in most things she does both on Earth and in other dimensions she still has a magnet inside tilting her decision-making toward poor choices.
Editing was good but I found the slang the main character used kind of over done. Three out of five units of satisfaction.
Iax works for a government agency that travels through different Realms and Dimensions. Of course, not may know of this agency, mostly just the ones that work for them. Since the agency is very hush, hush, Iax is forced to live 2 lives. Luckily, her father has worked for the agency, so she can speak freely of work around her parents. Probably the main reason why she can stay sane with this huge secret. The other downfall from working with this job is that you never know when or where your assignment will be. One minute you can be out on the town, next thing you know, you are falling into the middle of no where.
On Iax's current mission, she has been transported to the Dragon Cove. And yes, before you ask, there are dragons!! There is a battle about to break out between 2 Dragon Weyrs. She is to go in and do whatever it takes to end the battle. Unfortunately, this mission isn't going to be the normal pop in, get-er-done, and pop back home. This has become one of the hardest missions Iax has come across since she has joined the agency. Now due to events beyond her control, she is not only there to stop the battle because it is her mission, but because it now effects her life. Iax has learned that she isn't the only one that has been keeping secrets, but so has her family. She now has to also overcome the secrets that are beginning to unravel that will change her life forever.
Great start to the series. I look forward to reading the next installment.
