Quote from Caranthir »Well,I read it thoroughly.
Alas,no matter how Doug tries,he is not,and will never be a good storywriter.
It just seems that everything he writes ends up a little off. Too fast pacing. Too cheesy joke. Too descriptive moment,too bad dialogue. A word redundant here,missing there. And when you have the awesome work of Chris L'Etoile with the same characters to compare,this reads like a second-rate fanfic.
It would also help not trying to cram as many things as possible into one story...and if you really have to,then let someone else than Doug write it. This read a lot of like Battle of Thraben - resulting in not enough time for everything and important things happening too fast (death of Brisela,for example).
So Dovin just...planeswalked away. And Hungry Flames were just...toothless.
One thing left me wondering. We are practically at the end of story. Battle is next,and then epilogue (Dark Intimations). Aether Revolt hits shelves this Friday. WHAT are we supposed to read whole February and March?!
Hopefully? The Gatewatch characters going about their daily routines - I mean, what do these people do when they're not kicking Eldritch Abominations in the junk or getting swept up in societal powerstruggles?
I'd just like to see Jace do some Guildpact work, since that's kind of his job, and let the other five members just... hang out. Show us what they do when they're off the clock.
