So I am done with the Amra Thetys now or at least the books that are released because it looks the story is not yet done. I noticed that the Oddly numbered books got higher ratings than the even ones, I hope book 6 breaks the rule when it is out. Also I finished this series in 5 months and I wasn’t one of the people who waited four years between books 4 and 5. The author explains the delay in the acknowledgment section and he had very solid reasons to be honest.
This book events take place after Amra is back which mean the book is from her POV again which made it easy to get into. I think Amra has a very unique voice that I am used to at this point and surprisingly I preferred her narrative voice to that of Holgren. I think this was the best entry in the story writing wise and I enjoyed it the most too!
The characters are as good as always, it is funny how everyone like were “Where is Holgren” and we were introduced to new creepy characters. Amra is her usual kickass self and the best thing is that she decides to be assertive in this book although that gets her in a lot of trouble but it is not like she cares a lot!
The pacing is good, I love that the author has consistent book sizes with around 30 chapters without making the books so long and I hope he continues like that! The plot is the best so far because it is a war against the Gods so there is a lot happening all the time and it is just a series of unfortunate events that makes Amra’s life hard!
Summary: I am happy with this entry and I think the author really grew as a writer. The writing and characters improved, the plot was very engaging and I am definitely looking forward to more of Amra’s adventure whenever she is ready for more!
