Sometimes I grew weary, other times I was spellbound by the scope of the story. This might as well be a Metabarons book wrapped in a Young Adult blanket, for better or for worse.

Lots of things happen without conflict or explanation, then other times there's struggle and overt explanation of this incredibly detailed universe. I honestly can't tell if it's fully original or not, it seems like half fantasy/half sci-fi which is a really hard line to walk.

That being said, I wasn't bored and the last 100 pages or so really kept me going. There's no chance this could be a live action movie, the budget would soar like crazy, but I'd be thrilled to see an animated version of it. I had a bit of a hard time telling all the Golds apart (how many people can be seven feet tall, gorgeous and killers in combat?) so I resorted to looking up a few fan made images and that definitely helped.

I liked it enough to keep going with Book 4, but I don't know if I would necessarily recommend this series. It's fun, really fun. It has teeth and consequences. It's sometimes mindless and breakneck and Darrow seems to know a billion things happening at once, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Every time I start to wonder if this book/series is poorly written, I turn the page and another batshit crazy twist happens and I forget entirely any qualms I have. I don't think I've ever read a series with a more breakneck pace. There is almost no time to let events sink in - there's always some new twist, or betrayal, or battle, or fascinating world building set-piece that I was always invested and interested, if not a little exhausted by the end. As my brother in law said, "I'm not sure if it's good, but it sure is fun."… (altro)

I like the universe this series is set in and I like Darrow's story. I liked but didn't love the first book in the series and this one was supposed to be even better. Most people think so.
In a way, it is a better book than the first one. There is less world-building (which I loved) and more action (better than in the last book, but still boring).
But, I didn't enjoy reading it. It felt like a chore and I was so happy when I finished. I even considered DNFing it. Things got old really quickly and although there is a lot going on, it is just a drag altogether. There is something about the style that just doesn't vibe with me. The book has too many twists and too many unimportant characters which makes it somewhat superficial. I didn't care about the characters, Darrow's plot armor is thick enough to get him through anything. And the relationships are boring. The setting is still great though, but it is not enough on its own.
I did like Sevro, he is my favourite character in the series.

It didn't help that I decided to get this in Croatian translation, which was horrible, but I switched back to the original after a few chapters. However, nothing helped to improve the impression. 2.5 stars rounded up.
