1. Price! Check the length of the book before you buy. I bought this book as I liked it's predecessor and was excited for the sequel. Sadly I did not even think to check the length as the last book was almost 11 hours. When this book suddenly came to an end I thought it was a joke or something, I was thinking "Um... it should only be about half over at this point."
Typically I refuse to buy any book that does not meet or surpass the $1/hour value threshold. Consider that if you have the platinum account one credit equals just under $10. As such this book should have a length of at least 10 hours. It's not even close.
2. While the writing is good it is not an improvement over the first book and the main character is SIGNIFICANTLY lacking in growth. Shockingly so. I mean the fish out of water thing can be fun but let's consider the deceased equine fully pulped at this point. Honestly if he is this dense how in the world has he managed to survive this long?
3. This feels like they just rushed this to publishing in order to cash in as fast as possible. The book feels like it lacks structure. Like the author going to have some but then the editor said, "Nope you're done, we will just go with what you have"
It's sad as this is a fun story and the author had a good thing going and now he has lost me as a reader. I won't support this sort of bait and switch tactics. Honestly the audacity is bit much. NY Times best selling authors would never try and short change their readers but these people think that doing so if fine. GLWT.

While I really do love the book, the way it's written, the characters and the story. It was so much fun. but this feels like a cheap way to get more money due to book 2 to being just a few more chapters from the book 1. I do not appreciate this but I really do like the series

the second book in the series, and like the first, it's a lot of fun.
We follow our hero and his crew on the second stage of the quest, and it's lively, colourful, well-written, and funny. We have all sorts of mythic beasts and monsters, and it turns out they all a hoot.
if I were to make one teensy criticism it's that it felt to me like the story finished mid-way through. It'll carry on in book 3 I'm sure, but left me a little unsatisfied. Or to be more positive, desperate for the next installment.
All things considered, a great story, highly enjoyable. More more more please!
