Classic Deus ex machina; finally resolved major plotlines
Reviewed in the United States on April 27, 2020
The buck stops here; I am not stupid enough to continue reading this series.
First of all, it would be utterly pointless as the major conflict was finally resolved and 5 overly long books' worth of literary blue balls relieved(succinct and concise are apparently neither in the author's vocabulary). Unfortunately, the method by which they occurred was a literal deus ex machina and therefore a tremendous disappointment. Second, if you don't know a subject, don't write it. Horses do not have snouts; that's hogs. They have soft noses, faces, muzzles. ANY of those words work; snout does not. Also, stroking a horse's flank is a fine way to get flattened; horses are notoriously ticklish in the flanks. To be frank, I really don't understand why that scene was even in the book, other than to verify that MarySue, I mean Eira, is super-very-extra special.
Yet again, grammatical errors abound. The author has made her opinion of her readers' intellect and valuation of their time very clear here.
