If this was a stand alone book, this would have been a fantastic read and don't get me wrong, this is. Though considering this is a trilogy, it is really sad that the gripping narration and fast paced story line of this book is not carried to the other two. The timing for introducing suspense and excitement is bang on in this one, in the other two it is a very long drag!
The second book is the worst of all. It becomes tiring after the first 5th of the book. You feel and realize that this book is more of a filler - a page filler, to make a trilogy out of it. The book loses it's excitement, due to the predictable "surprise elements" and just drags on and on. Too much drama, romance and ill fitting thriller sections - for no reason at all. Took me over a week to finish it. It felt like a very boring assignment that you have to finish so you can move on to the next, hoping it to be better.
The third book gets better, than the second - but it is very easy to get better than the second, so it doesn't say much about the third book either. The writing style that was so encapsulating in the first book comes back here in bits and pieces, but this book is nowhere close to the first. Full of boring and unnecessary passages.
Overall, I feel, that this trilogy could have been ended at least 2 books earlier; and I believe this could have been one to keep forever and pass it on for generations, but, the NEED for a TRILOGY has definitely overtaken the the requirement for good material. Alas! The writer has talent, this could have been so much better.
