I stared this book with excitement as the setting is interesting and I was looking forward to a fun adventure. I wasn't expecting anything extraordin..Show More »ary but even my mediocre expectations were let down as the book wore on.
From an good start the book sets up an interesting conspiracy with massive ramifications and then almost completely ignores it before ending with no real conclusion to events. The whole future time line has some serious holes and the magical technology is unconvincing, even for a time travel book. The characters arent anything special either so what's left is fairly weak. It's a shame because I feel the author failed to exploit a good setup here.
