I read a surprising amount of Brian Rathbone’s Call of the Herald on my Nook while I was in Thailand before realizing that it was better to stop wasting my time than finish it just for the sake of finishing it. I’d bought it on spec because it was cheap and I thought I remembered reading something good about somewhere.
Well, either I misremembered or else whoever said good thing about it was horribly mistaken.
First of all, I’m pretty sure this is actually YA fiction. Nothing else can justify to the thinly drawn, bland characterizations and lack of a well imagined setting.
So, evil invaders into a peaceful land, blah blah blah, local girl develops super awesome magical powers, blah blah, and I don’t know what next because I didn’t finish it and I don’t care.
