Eastern Expansion (book review)
Book Type: Audible Book
Length: 12h 32m
If you read my review for the first book review here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show…, it shouldn’t surprise you that we are on a downward spiral. Not worth the time.
The book continued its decline. There were really no positives in the book. The writing of the women and the “shipping” between characters declined. Mostly in an attempt to distance him from his current women and to add additional women.
The cons from the first big are still there, but even more evident. The relationships are stale, the plot line veers from Vince being all powerful to not being able to stand up to a strong wind. There was no real world building here, just Vince thinking he could threaten everyone and they should follow him.
It is a shame, the world is interesting, even the portals he finds, but just not enough to keep it going. The relationship scenes are very much written by rote, and not worth the time.
Overall, this is where I jump off the series. I am fairly certain I won’t pick up more of his books either. I don’t think he has bad ideas necessarily, just doesn’t go anywhere with them, and gets more and more plot bloat as we go.
