Feist’s newest work is sadly utterly disappointing. ‘King of Ashes’ reads like a minimally edited self-published book, with a bloated length, multiple instances of repetition, poor time scaling and blatant contradictions.
The only positive is the overall plot is interesting. However, the characters are lightly sketched and difficult to like.
As a fan of much of Feist’s earlier work ‘King of Ashes’ is a complete let down. Significant room for improvement for the sequel.
