New Amazon Review!

This has been a very difficult book to read and review.
To begin with, I absolutely loved the hook and the writing style. From the characters dialogue to the quotes at the beginning of chapters, I very much enjoyed the author's skill at constructing a complicated world with interesting people.
The downside is that there's little or no explanation or back-story given for anything. Right from the beginning, we are told it is the “third age”. OK, the third age of what? Why is this the third age? What happened to the second age? These questions and more are never answered.
This author has great potential and is probably a terrific lecturer or essay writer. This book has everything it needs to make it a great story except the story itself. It lacks both narrative and description. I finished reading it because I enjoyed the style.
The reader is left to wonder if this world is a future Earth or a completely different universe. The narrative is often hard to follow because the POV switches from one character at one time to another in possibly a different time, right in the middle of chapters with no warning. This makes it difficult to keep track of who is doing what where and when.
This story is about continuing war. The enemy seems some kind of giant cyborg bug, which was thought to have been defeated and or destroyed at some unknown time in the past. The story centers around a small group of people, one of whom has discovered his father's mysterious sword. The sword seems to grant or awaken some kind of power within our hero, but it's unclear if his power is purely mental or some kind of man machine hybrid.
That said, I look forward to seeing how Wade's writing grows from here!
