How the Multiverse Got Its Revenge by K. Eason
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat with a lot of reviewers for this one.
I really enjoyed the light touch, the humor, and the character-centric royal intrigue of the first book. At least, I enjoyed it enough to want to see where Rory would go with it.
The second book just fell into a fairly average space opera with pretty standard onboard spacecraft subplots, be it finding a superweapon or getting into spacecraft scuffles, or handling aliens.
None of this is a dealbreaker, of course. But it does require the familiar light touch, humor, and charm. And sadly, I didn't really feel it in this one. Indeed, I admit to feeling a bit bored over fairly long stretches.
The first was pretty good, but this, sadly, was merely average and felt kinda forced. Star-Wars, it is not.
