A good, but not great read
on June 14, 2013
This book was fairly decent. I wouldn't rank it on my You MUST read this list, but it was a decent book It did feel rather long with it's 5 part assassinations broken out into books though. The story was a little choppy how it kept flip-flopping back and forth between the past and the present. You really had to pay attention to the chapter heading to know which part you were about to read. It was a little confusing.
Spoiler alert: The ending was less than impressive. I had to go back and reread it thinking.... wait.... did I miss something? It lacked the powerful ending I was expecting and not sure if it was intentionally left open to interpretation for a sequel or if the reader was meant to interpret it and make a presumption.
Seemed long a long, drawn out book, though it didn't lack excitement. There were a few surprise elements that I did NOT see coming, but with turns like that, I expected a great one at the end, that did not happen. A little bit of a let-down simply because of the ending.
Worth reading, but if you have other books in mind, this one can be left behind for later.
