"What The Frak"
Absolutely - Joseph Delaney
Not if I have to listen to this narrator making everyone except Tom sound CELTRIC/ Don't do that.
Please, Please go back and get the original NARRATOR Christopher Evan Welch. I would purchase it again just to hear him narrate it.
Disappointing on many levels
The Alice relationship, which is a crux for most of the series felt extremely glossed over and shoved to the side. The whole explanation of Alice's motivations and what really happened also felt very rushed.
No, I felt it was the worst book in the series thus far. I love this series and was very much looking forward to this installment. It felt like Delaney just forcing a new series out of this book. He doesn't let this book properly finish the Last Apprentice series. Can he continue on? Sure, but this book felt like it didn't have a resolution at all. If felt like the characters were more flying by the seat of their pants after having these clear options before them.
There is a gross amount of reiteration of old material that isn't put forward in a way that is anything but dull to readers who have been following the series. Not only that, but he does it multiple times!
I was actually quite surprised and sad to find that Christopher Evan Welch didn't read this book. Cendese was fine, but he couldn't match Welch's depth and strength.
I just don't appreciate where this book went at all. Frankly, I'm still so angry that I'm having a hard time putting it into words.
