The Golden City by Twelve-Hawks: Snooze Fest

The Washington Post Book World ran my review of John Twelve-Hawks’ The Golden City, the last in his trilogy. Although I’ll give him props for some of the settings, the characters were cardboard and the action clumsy at best.

    I bought that book for my mother after I gave her the first two books to read after I reviewed them in 2007. She said it was not quite as interesting as the first two and since I liked those only in a popcorn sort of way, that was enough to dissuade me from reading it myself. Your thoughts only strengthen my resolve on that front.
