(These days I don't know what considered spoilers anymore, but I put it here anyway to avoid upsetting ppl)
So I found myself reading this book until the end, that gives automatic 3*.
Do I want to read the second book? No.
The setting is good where we have artefact that relates to our own history (Alexander the great, Genghis Khan, Japan emperor jewel, etc), so it's easier for us to understand.
The story flows quite quickly too, it's interesting and not boring
Too many unnecessary Japanese vocabularies injected in the stories. As if the author is Japanese 101 teacher trying to teach us basic words. I found it quite tiring after awhile.
The jumping between character narrative is very hard to read. I found myself skipping page on Kent storyline. Luckily they are usually very short compared to Matt storyline. Kent doesn't have any special abilities and I found myself not interested in knowing what he's doing.
The author can't make up hours mind about the power of the stones. In the middle of the book he even hinted that the stones related to aliens. By the end of the book we have light saber battle between the stones holders. It feels very star wars like.
Dull characters. Matt doesn't have any distinctive feats. He was described as athletic , but this has no advantage against the bad guy. Jessica was just there to be damsel in distress. The bad guy's minions follow the bad guy without questioning.
All in all, it has good setting, too bad ended up in star wars lightsaber battle.
The stones, their potential powers and holders made for a lot of very cool possibilities. The author has been able to piece together some history, philosophy, religion, fantasy and other exciting topics to create a world which is easily manipulated so as to keep the reader guessing.. This was the best part of the book.
The editing, story line, characters, foreshadowing, everything was just great and expertly achieved. Stong points for formatting and editing as well. This is a book which you would expect to be published by a large publishing house as it definitely has potential to have a strong following. At a buck or two give it a read.
As far as action goes - first five times of "or my ... they killed Kenny" is somewhat believable - the fifteenth time is probably overboard.
