The Weeping Empress
on Aug. 10, 2012
Couldn't get past first two pages, the writing was that amateurish. Independently published does not need to equate to poor writing skills. I'm more than willing to wait for a book to develop momentum before pulling me into the story, but trudging through seas of excessive adverbs, mental states reported instead of described, wooden dialog - well I could go on, but maybe you'll get the picture. I don't want to be more cruel than necessary. Anyhow, I just couldn't do it. There are too many actually good books waiting on my reading list.
