I think that I was looking for something of an Indiana Jones adventure. While Leadbeater delivers shades of Indy, there are way too many ideas in this book… many of them are underdeveloped.
Drake is a very interesting character. It is unfortunate that his character is not further developed. Frey is a great foil for Drake, but Frey is underdeveloped. Regrettably, there are far too many other characters. It is difficult to remember who is who sometimes.
I had really hoped to like this book as a slight change of pace for me, but I just don’t find it to be very enjoyable. 2 stars
