Honestly, this was a good book that left me in a haze after finishing it, and I totally felt motivated to read it in one short sitting (which I did!) Hell knows the cast is full of complete assholes though, and I want to pummel all of them into the ground, especially the titular Prince Carden.
This is the only way Jude/Carden is an okay ship and if you don’t understand it, you are a better man than me.

There’s nothing technically wrong with this book, and you’ll find I have very little to gripe about beyond my general ambivalence on the subject of boats. ‘Boat fiction’ is just something I have never been into.
I read this as part of the Sapphic book club, and as always, it’s great to read a good action-adventure lgbt genre book, especially on the tailend of the horribleness that was 27 hours (review pending).
This will be super short.

This book, at least the first half of it, is wondrous in it’s possibilities and killer high-knowledge based magic. Second part is eh, leading to more eh, and a pretty eh-based series. With bonus edgy whiny characters.

(Book 1 review, Book 2. This is the last book in the trilogy)
Ah, Kneupper. I love this series, I really do. I was so excited for this book, even if the warning signs were all there. And it didn’t suck, really. I had fun. This has always been a guilty pleasure of mine anyways.
But you nearly had it all, you bozo.
Way to blow it.

(Book two in a series. Book one is here. Book three is here.)
O Kevin, O Kneupper! I know it is tempting to name your books fancy things, but considering book three is just ‘Adversary’, maybe you shouldn’t have jumped onto naming book two… Chaos Umpire Sits. It’s a little, well. A little much, isn’t it Kev?
I just finished book three, speaking of, so it’s time for a full write up of book two.

This is a very meh book. I didn’t particularly want it to be, but it failed me in every way. There was nothing really going on, the writing was dull, the worldbuidling was clearly making an effort but explained poorly, and nothing felt interesting, legitimate, or real.
The characters are diverse, but even in the reviews that’s all anyone can talk about. Yay for diversity! Not much to cheer about otherwise.
