Loved it!!!! just as much as the other two.
so witty, full of insight and many lessons without being condescending... A wonderful continuation to the story of Don and his way of analysing the world...I hope all three books are made into movies and I sincerely hope there are many more.

Disappointing

The plot and premises of this story had a lot of potential but some of the characters did not have consistency in their personality, one minute they feel love the next hate then pity, all within the same chapter, just not developed or researched enough on human behaviour. It could have been a great book but something just didn't work and left me with an uneasy feeling... like two people were writing this book and didn't talk to each other regarding the reactions of the main characters. what a shame because it was almost there and could have been epic.

AWESOME!

I have absolutely loved this story and the way it was narrated... if only it could come true.

Wasted potential

Poor character consistency, long winded narratives that do not enhance the story. so full of potential but frustrating. if only the characters weren't portrayed so two dimensional and inconsistent. one minute the wolfskin is strong physically and emotionally, then with a flip on a coin He turns into a weak, emotionally wounded man on a brink of fainting for not a very good reason. very very frustrating indeed. it could have been a wonderful story if only developed properly.

Evil robots was a disappointed cliche, the first book was much more enjoyable and full of possibilities for a more intricate original follow up story.
I still want to know what happens next and will purchase the next book... but I don't consider this story anything new nor set apart from many already existing si-fi novels.

a page turner!

the ink mage series was different than other series, and I enjoyed the first book, but the story started to fall apart in subsequent books. This one in particular made me feel frustrated at the wasted potential. It felt like the author attempted too much, too fast resulting in a incoherent ending.

wonderful!

loved this book! same as the first one. I have fallen in love with Don, The message that I got from this story is than everyone, even "normal" people have querky aspects on their personality that can impare emotional behaviour, as it's illustrated by Don's friends and people around him.

Did not like it

The beginning of the book was quite interesting and kept me eager to keep reading. I got the feeling that it would be a great story. But towards the middle the story started to fall apart and the narrative started to became boring and repetitive. towards the end I found it frustrating and the end very disappointing because there were a lot of the elements in the story left unexplained.
