A bit ago I decided to finally fold and buy the Empyrean Age novel. I was really waiting for it to come out in mass-market paperback (the smaller pocket-sized volumes rather than the trade paperbacks, which are essentially the size of your standard hardback) because my shelves don't have the room for another trade... Bah.
But I bought it, brought it home, and determined to read it through with the intention of posting a review.
So I owe everyone an apology.
I cannot finish this book. I've read up to page 109, and I cannot read any more. I've dropped better novels after only the first chapter, and it's testament to my initial determination that I gave it this much of a chance.
Everything that can be said has already been said, by people with stronger constitutions than mine.
