I gave up on this book. There is nothing else to say about it. In my mind, Stormdancer was still decent although Nevernight was a mess for lack of better word.
I just didn’t care about any of the characters at all. I found Buruu to be more annoying than anything else for that matter. Yukiko, what role did she play in the story again? I can’t even bloody remember.
The plot for lack of better word was all over the place and I don’t think it was going anywhere. Add on characters which I barely know nor care about, and you have a huge problem because I don’t give a damn about them.
I’m not going to talk about the Japanese representation, which to me was bloody confusing here. Some Shogun died, and who inherits. I thought there were Emperors as the title of Shogun used to be non-inheritable. It all depends on the Emperor at least until the Edo era.
But you know what, this confused me. Perhaps it was just too long since I read Stormdancer and I can’t even remember much about it.
But at the end of the day, it failed to jog my memory or even make me care the least bit about the characters.
