I have really tried with this series. I mean, come on I got all the way to the third book. But I have to say, now I am done. I have nothing against the main character and the author’s writing is fine. But none of the plots really grab me and I find myself muddling through all the books asking when they are going to be over! So now for me at least, they are over! Too many boring battle scenes…. Not enough heartfelt emotion… The only part I did like was the Ben Hur slave moment.
