We pick up right where The Bone Season (TBS) left us so there is no need to guess what happened between where one left off and the other one picked up. The downside? TMO had 501 pages that could have been full of epic battles, adventurous endeavors, lots of Warden/Paige action...but it fell flat. I get that TMO takes place in London while TBS took place at Sheol I but, do we really need 300+ pages of world building to get anywhere?
ALL IN ALL
-Paige is still a bad ass, if not more. Granted, she could have stood up for herself on more than one occasion (take for instance that one time when Hector and his gang jump her in the middle of town and she just stands there) but given the situations she got herself into I wouldn't have faired any better than she did. So...I cannot be so harsh on her for this.
- Warden is still, well, Warden (and they say that women are complicated). Wish we had seen more of him though. He has two scenes with Paige (the two of them alone) and that is about it. Warden and Paige were the reason why I decided to read TMO and I was left wanting more. I need more!
- The new characters were OK but we really don't see much of them. I hope we get to see more of Ivy, Danica, Nick, Eliza, Nell, Jos, Wynn, and the Ranthen in the following books. I want Ivy to become something BIG! She needs to be stronger and an ally to Paige. They could be totally badass together!
-Jaxon is still Jaxon. Well, Jaxon became what Jaxon would be if he had absorbed the powers and ego of his evil twin...does that make sense?
That is the badass Paige I know she can be! The ending was great...sadly it took only 450 pages to get there!
I know that the series will amount to something big, I can feel it. But... If there is something I cannot deal with when reading is a slow paced story. Yeah, I get that there needs to be character development and world building but it needn't be that slow. Give me some battles in between, make me want to keep reading through the information dump. Make me want more. The Mime Order shouldn't have taken me so long to read!
And if this is any indiction to what the next 5 books will feel like....I don't know if I will be finishing this series at all. And that is very disappointing as I had great hopes for it!
I liked this much better than The Bone Season. There seemed to be a clearer plot line and things move along at a little better pace. But it is still slightly slow in places to the point I almost started skimming and there is a ton of world building still happening that might have got a little bogged down with details.
Paige is growing on me but the majority of the reason I don't totally love this book is her. She is young and growing but for some of this I think she is so naive and makes choices that I clearly see will get others killed later. However by the end of this book I was totally starting to really like her character a lot more and maybe she is actually learning from the mistakes she made.
Warden is still my favorite character and I find him to possibly be the most interesting character in the book. I really want to know more about him and some of the dynamics of the Rathem. Jaxon is another mystery character that while I hate him, he does fill the page well and I'm not sure just how cruel he could be.
The Ending was fantastic though and I loved the reveal at the end. I had my suspicions but it still had a nice punch to it when it all played out.
I still think the two don't blend well together and it makes for an awkward pairing. Like this should be two separate series. One being the Rephaim, secret alien takeover of earth, etc and the other series being supernatural, ghosts, gangs, Unnaturalness, Scion, Powers, etc. this is a blending of two distinctly separate types of books and it doesn't sit well together.
Overall though, the writing in this book is excellent. It has great detail and you can almost feel the dark seedy underbelly of London where ghosts and gangs roam, Mime lords and Mime Queens rule, and Scion oppresses. I am anxious to see where the series goes.
