This book suffers from the "latest book in a successful trilogy" syndrome.

You know. The one I talked about here.

It was good. But it would have been better if the publishers remembered that the only thing separating them from the self-publishing houses is the FILTERING and EDITING they provide. Meaning: don't rush and under-edit a good author just because you want to make $$ faster. You're just undermining your own business value that way, people.

(and yes, I realize the irony of me saying this after my very last post was all about not being able to wait. but I would have waited for something better. I'm not *completely* a child.)

  1. I totally agree. I felt like it needed much more editing and polishing to be really readable. There were many jarring parts that just took me out of the story!
