Blood in the Water by Taylor Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm kind of in two minds about this series at this point. On the one hand, Anderson's got a talent for high action and for expanding the world he's built with every new book he puts out. On the other hand, when is enough, enough? It's become a little hard to keep up with what's going on in every single part of the world, and as a result, the story now feels really drawn-out and spread thin.
At least he's still able to put out a new book each year, unlike, say, George R.R. Martin.
But you know what? This series...wasn't it supposed to be a trilogy? Now it's expanded to over ten books like S.M. Stirling's Emberverse, although it's still managed to keep my interest well after the six-book mark or so.
My point is, Anderson's got skills, but he should redirect his energies elsewhere as opposed to building up this series into the stratosphere because he just can't seem to freaking end this already. I'm concerned that if this series doesn't end soon, it's going to seriously overstay its welcome, if it hasn't already.
