The Obsidian Blade by Pete Hautman

The concept behind this book was incredible but didn't flow well. Some parts seemed too slow and others too fast. The protagonist's personality and depth felt flat, like a painting next to a sculpture. I felt like I got half a book; the plot is still building. The author seems to not understand the concept of a series. It is NOT when you take a book and chop it into thirds for more money. Take the sequel and sew it to this book before you read it if you want a full story.

Rating: 2 Needs work
