Realm Breaker

We rated this book:


Corayne is her mother’s daughter and wants to join her, free on the sea, traveling the ocean and visiting far off places. A successful pirate, Meliz does not want her daughter plundering with her. Fortunately, Corayne is home when an Elder and an assassin request her assistance in saving the world from What Waits. The one thing to stop Taristan, whose only goal is opening portals to other dimensions and inviting the terrors within, is Corayne, whose blood and blade can stop the horrors coming to the Ward.

It is impossible to conceive of a prologue longer than the one that begins Realm Breaker. In fact, most chapters are pages and pages long, in a book that could have been half its length. The story reads like a freshman effort, something an aspiring author would write hoping to sell her first book, not one who has published an entire series already. Some witty dialogue help some, but the bland characters may leave some snoozing instead. Those readers who enjoyed the final couple books to the Red Queen series may like this one, but otherwise, leave as a last desperate resort for reading material.
