12% through this story and man is it dragging out. Story line is going nowhere I'm guessing somewhere at around 35% Lawhead kicks in with awesomeness and then I am unable to put this book back down. My goodness, this one is a slow read and I am not certain that I will ever finish this series... at least this year!
The pace is picking up, sadly, the middle is well drawn out and there is no way I could in fairness to other books give this one anything more than a 3 star. The story line has become quite predictable and the characters, perhaps, are just to well known now for this story to take on they type of story that Lawhead is ever so famous for.
Finished. Stephen Lawhead is a great storyteller. Despite some disappointments in this book I look forward to my read of Tuck. No surprises but so well written it is enjoyable none the less.
