And he chugged...

Good book all round. A few large time skips in there and only an average level of world building and character development that I look for but still good ideas in there for sure.
When I heard that girls voice after one of those time jumps I almost stopped listening to the book. It was quite heartbreaking. Glad I continued and finished the book though.

But damn hearing characters chugging mana bottles gets old fast. It must have been mentioned 100 times throughout the book at minimum.

Rushed and unfinished.

The story was okay with several interesting events though the two ‘plot lines’ felt very disconnected as I just wanted to get back to the main story. There are far too many minor inconsistencies or repetitions of phrases especially in the final chapters. Too many times did things just ‘go well’. It would be better if there was less outright explaining of the world and more discovery. And probably my biggest gripe would be the constant attempts to do the whole shock and awe thing. It works and is a part of the series though seeing it so often and somewhat forced becomes jarring. I was hoping this would improve over the last book but it got worse.

The narrator on the other hand did a great job with bringing out the characters.

Nicely done

I found the narration was great paired with the characters and their ‘different’ humour. Got a few good laughs out of me. That being said the pacing in the book does change somewhat throughout the book for a well rounded journey. Definitely picking up the next in series.

Previous ones were better.

My only real gripe with this book is the somewhat generic phrases and terms being repeated. Other than that the main story progresses much slower then previous books.
