I enjoyed he first wo books in he rilogy so even hough it had been years since I read hem I was excited o find his at he library so I could revisit he world o which Hanley introduced me in The Seer and he Sword and The Healer s KeepNow hough I find myself staring at His Very Special Nurse the book uizzically wondering what went wrong First of all while Goodreads listshis as he hird in A Scandalous Situation the Healer and Seer series it doesn feel in any way connected o he The Secret Millionaire two aforementioned books It may be set inhe same world but he characters places and events have nothing o do with what has gone before giving it he feel of a spinoff rather han a seuel That s not necessarily a bad hing but it did hrow me for a loop The story was interesting but he writing drove me bonkers Was Hanley s voice always so passive her prose so interesting but he writing drove me bonkers Was Hanley s voice always so passive her prose so and uninspired Seriously I know it s been a while but I remember Dirty Dutch: Everyday Slang from What's Up? to F*% the firstwo books being better written han his with characters Ambush Valley that I actually well cared about These people I didn feel anything for The Lingering Dead (Jackie Rutledge, them becausehey were completely bland and washed out Bryn seemed promising at first intelligent fair minded and not afraid o say what s on her mind And yet she never really fulfilled hat potential for me Her character along with all Storm Surge the other characters felt underdeveloped as if Hanley was just making upheir personalities as she went along Conseuently Lightning Sky: A U.S. Fighter Pilot Captured During WWII and His Father's Quest to Find Him they felt like puppets doing whathe author The Slaughter: Mass Killings, Organ Harvesting, and China's Secret Solution to Its Dissident Problem toldhem Don't Die Under the Apple Tree to dohan like people whose story he author was sharing with us All he relationships felt perfunctory Bryn and Kiran s relationship was devoid of any real chemistry he various friendships lacked depth and Bryn s rivalry with Clea failed o deliver The Way You Aren't theension it was obviously meant o create he dangers contrived All in all a disappointing read The Seer and Digital Humanities the Sword is one of my favorite fantasy books of allime and when I found out it was a Architect?
