Same formula:but it still works

If you've read the previous books in the series you know the formula. The author is like a cook who cooks the same comfort food again and again. That isn't necessarily a bad thing as he is really good at it. I would say this is my favorite of the series so far. that is because it the story gets moving faster than the previous books. The other books you have to slog through the first several chapters before the story gains momentum.

This book you start off with a character you know who also is not being thrown out of recluse. So, it is at least slightly different. I think the real draw to this series is you care about the characters and world and want to see how things turn out. I enjoyed this one, more in fact than the previous ones. You have to have read the previous books, but if you have then It's worth a listen.

I don't normally do this, but.....

The story is typical Modisett,good to great, and the narrator is galumphing along, when all of a sudden he makes sound effects for a horse or a fireball. These are grating enough to take me out of the story and make me consider the fast forward ff button

L.E. Modesitt JR and recluse do it again

If you could sum up The Death of Chaos in three words, what would they be?

Gripping, Entertaining, Exciting

Who was your favorite character and why?

Larris as always the most involved character, but always the last to realise whats going on, a sort of innocence about him

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed the bits where Larris was debating about buying chickens as this shows him as a person, who doesnt just demand things and he can be got the better of if you keep on asking

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when Chyrstal and Larris did tyhe link together

Any additional comments?

thoroughly gripping read, couldnt put it down, going to get the next one right now!!!!!!
