There is a childlike naivete about this writing that amounted to over-explanations about every characters moves that interupted the storyline to the point I gave up after five chapters. I am sure they were intended to somehow explain particular actions but as they did not really help the plot move on could not see the point. Add to this one of the heroes could not just demand his belongings back from his kidnappers but insisted three times he get three specific items returned to him or else. Had me in mind of a deliberate advertising placement for Apple. I was taken by the storyline initially but lost the will to pursue it. It would benefit from some serious editing though in a world that has been thoroughly saturated by Holy Grails and the like it may need more to overcome the current negatives for me.
