Well 2017 is canceled because … what a fucking disappointment!

Wow … ok I struggled with this rating FOR REAL! Flip-flopping between 2 and 2.5 and even toying with the idea of a 1 when my ranting reminded me how pissed I was at this utter catastrophe of anticipation and hype!

But I’m going to try to keep a cool head here and rate it at a 2 because this is not a bad book? … but I have a shit tone of rants so be prepared to question my usage of that statement.


DON’T READ THIS REVIEW IF:

  • You love this book and cannot handle a differing opinion
  • Are easily offended
  • Can’t stand cursing especially the over-usage of the word FUCK
  • Plan to try and convince me this was an amazing book

Furthermore … this review CONTAINS MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR SERIES AND BOOK SPOILERS! I tried to mark them all with a red ⇒⇐ and light gray lettering but I may have missed a few so continue at your own risk.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Here.

We.

Go!

War has come to Pythian and blah de blah yeah … by now you know the story so let’s just skip this part ok.
