I enjoyed this entry less than the last one but it was still better than the second book. I did not know it was Holgren’s book but I guess it kind of makes sense given the title of the book (The titles of the books in this series are smart and creative). I always preferred Holgren above Amra but I guess there is a certain charm for having both of them together.

The problem was that the transition to Holgren’s POV is kind of surprising and changes the tone the reader expect from the book so it takes some time to get used to specially that it starts in a not smooth way!

For some reasons I am not sure of I kept getting into and out of the story (To be fair I did not read this at the best time given the current state of my country) and that affected my enjoyment of it. I think the main thing I enjoyed was the mythology and the lore of the world. I enjoyed the world building when it comes to the Hells and the Gods too.

The book did make us get to know Holgren on a deeper level, the plot felt a bit like a filler because there is a goal and it moves the story forward but most of the things we see in the book are bumps that hinders Holgren’s journey because God forbids that a journey ever goes so smoothly!

Summary: I enjoyed the book and now I have more one entry in the series. Holgren is my favorite and I still love him but the story was unfocused at first and needed some time to get used to. In the end I enjoyed where it went and I liked the world-building, I think my expectations were just a bit high.
