This is the end of the Academy Series for me

What would have made Cauldron better?

There was little in the book to keep my attention. I kept waiting for it to get better and in the end, it was disappointing. It's like he had to write another in the series but really wasn't into it. I have enjoyed the series up to this point but I won't be looking for any more books in this series.
