Well it’s the first Friday of the month, which means it’s time for another review! That’s the working schedule I have going on at the moment. I’ll be doing primarily book reviews, but there might be the occasional movie review as well. If you’d like to see reviews more or less often please let me know! I’d love to hear from you, reader!
This month I’m reviewing The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima. Some of you will remember, last month I reviewed the first three books in this series. I did them all together like that because I had read them all before a while ago and had just re-read them. These next two books in the series I’m reading for the first time.
Like my last couple of reviews, I’m actually overlapping the content with my reviews at Urban-Fantasy.com once more. I will say, this book felt like a “Part 1” of a spin-off series more so than a “Book 4.” The ending of the book wasn’t satisfying to me. It left too many unanswered questions. I also had some mixed feelings on the main characters a bit; one of them I liked, the other not as much. But that’s not to say others wouldn’t find them enjoyable. Because the ending of the book left with so many things unanswered, I feel like it’s hard to give a full review until I finish the story.
I’ll say, I did not enjoy this spin-off as much as the first three books. Perhaps my expectations were high because I enjoyed the others so much. Perhaps I don’t like zombies. (Yeah, there were magical zombies.) Perhaps there was just a smidge more of teenaged angst than I would have liked.
There was a lot of teenaged angst. Am I sorry I read it? No. It was an enjoyable read and I was entertained. It just didn’t live up to the expectations the previous books set for me.
If you would like a break down of the synopsis, or a more in depth look at the main characters, I cover that more in my review at Urban-Fantasy.com. Check it out!
