Ink and Shadows (Ink and Shadows #1) by Rhys Ford
Ink and Shadows - Rhys Ford

UPDATE:
While reading the length of this book, one star. <----- That pretty much sums up the state of editing in this book. Hence the rating.

==================

I was sooooo looking froward to this book! This is pre-Kai Gracen universe, I was told. But the moment I dug in.... *sigh* I expected horror elements, of course, but not like this :/

This is a horror, alright. This. Is. Frigging terrible. Who "edited" this book? They really need to be fired. Like 3 years ago. Before this mess came out :/

Warning: Misplaced modifiers, POV ping-pong, adjectives (ab)used as nouns.

I lost the story behind this terror! :/ Sure, horror was never my poison, but it's on me, not the author. I still love Kai Gracen, but he certainly received much more attention from people who somewhat know how to apply English grammar to a written text. It wasn't perfect, but it was readable. Lack of editing in its entirety, however, I cannot forgive. Not where it comes to a published book. Not when that book costs you 7 bucks :/

I am beyond disappointed and this.... this close to DNF.


66% After acquiring a massive headache that not even sake can heal, I am DNF-ing. My brains says No. More!

I have a soft spot for poor princes in distress. At the same time I have a soft spot for mean revenge. Not having it was a cause of great disappointment where my meanness is concerned >:|


...something else bugged me, but I don't remember it now, so it must not be important.

Ah! I remember now:

all the good people have survived and all the bad people have perished (except for a character we don't really see much of or care anyway).

(spoiler show)



Those two problems even combined caused less drama in this book than I had hoped for. I was looking for epic proportions angst...

Hence 4 stars

PS And Kian. Very childish more often than not.

For some reason I expected more. More action, more adventure, more suspense, a much more satisfying crunch under the boot when things got really intense in the end. Still, a nice read :)
