This is one that I struggled to get through, despite the fact that this author wrote one of my favourite books. But its been a long time since I have visited this world and last time I visited it is was getting progressively less magical than the first novel.
That being said, there are some genuinely intriguing aspects to this, and by the end of the novel, I was interested enough in the characters to want to read whatever comes next.
Pug is still around – although he is a very different Pug than I last read! More importantly, there is a most intriguing demon creature who we watch evolve into…well something we may still not understand but will soon.
The new characters seem likeable – just hard to get my head around how different things are…. all these demon worlds and new magicians. Got some catching up to do.
