W characters that are supposed to serve as character development but just put me to sleep It s kind Gaudi of like reading an encyclopedia Maybe about 10%f character development comes from actual character interaction and action Which makes for a very boring story when each character is sitting in a chair and musing for a whole chapterDon t introduce so and so if so and so isn t going to do suat in the book Give them a few speaking lines but I don t want their life storyIt s just too long The ending is full The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 2 of action and intense but it doesn t make up for before Honor s capture where everyone is sitting around If it doesn t make any sense for the characters to be discussing the information than sitting in a room just limit these scenes and the amountf knowledge the reader is privy to There are some treecat scenes Samantha s clan basically invades Honor s home Astrología para principiantes on Grayson Miranda is adopted by a cat I ve always liked the treecats so I consider their scenes as a fun diversion to the long talking scenesWhere the characters are at the end set up the next book nicely unless it skips everything Hoping these books shorten up and then they would be enjoyable Notne Amen: what prayer can mean in a world beyond belief of the bestf this series It takes even longer than usual for anything to happen about 200 pages The situation that puts Honor in a position to be captured seems contrived as does the whole escape scenarioI think Weber has introduced a Lady Barbara for his Horatio Honor has fallen in love with the Earl No Puedo Perderte of White Haven I ve been careful to avoid spoilersn this series but if I had to guess things don t look good for White Haven s wife Jettison the debris clear the missle tubes abandon ship Whatever it takes to stop my eyes from further bleeding This is a sad day I ve rated most In Every Heartbeat of these books to this points with 4 stars withne The Seraphim Code of them good enough to earn a coveted 5th star Mostf them have infodumps and boring spells but this Sortemesse one has had nothing else for the first thirdToo many booksut there I want to read so no point in continuing to torturing myselfI might pick it up again later but for now I m resigning my commission While not the best book in the series it certainly has its moments As usual the title is a spoiler but that s OK Unfortunately it gives Weber a chance to make lots La fabbrica di cioccolato of people go all gooeyver Honor until the heroine worship already cloying becomes just too much We definitely get a much deeper look into Haven s society problems Weber has done a fine job there the book is worth reading for that if nothing else He s done a fine job Klara with A K of drawing parallels tour current welfare system Communist countries the French Revolution The abysmal stupidity ignorance Serving Sera of generational dole recipients as a whole is perfect his pointed remarks about whereur educational system are heading were right Samurai! on target IOW he s a bit preachy politically again but it didn t bother me as much as in the last While he explains as much he showed which helpedOn to the next Echoesf Honor.
