The de vinci code lite... Characters were shallow and military scenarios unrealistic. By the end I didnt really care who won

Too many plots running simultaneously

It was a really messy book. Because it has been a while since the last book the characters had faded in my mind but then they introduce heaps more and run lots of simultaneous plots the result is confusion and a lack of identity with any one character. It also has a very dire vibe with very little to get excited about, I came away vaguely depressed. Looks like it's trying to be a game of thrones copy, but I think it should revert back to why these books have always been great; more hunger games and less game of thrones.

Maybe this second book is targeted at kids; the main characters are so annoyingly dim, the dramatic scenes are telegraphed and over explained. Everything is over the top with big dramatic pauses. Ugh! was this the same author?
