Great idea for a book that fell flat to me. It wasn’t so much that I didn’t like reading it in as much that I felt like there was so much more that could have been done with a better imagination. The author’s writing style was solid, and he wrote good dialogue. However, his world building was much too shallow, and the magical system was a great idea that was never utilized to its potential. The main crime is all of interesting paths the author chose not to take. You have an engineer sent to a medieval world, and the only thing the author can think of him to do is invent gun powder. Of all the inventions that he could have made and he chose the obvious. This could have been a story about grand social ideas and new technology, and how that effected their world, but instead it was just gun powder and war.

Since You’ve Been Gone
The MC was likable enough, but inconistent, waffling between whiny and focused. Kind of got annoyed with how much he continued to be surprised by everything. I know that is probably realistic of how someone would actually behave there, but that didn’t make it any less annoying to read. He is constantly in fights and sometimes he wins through some skill or by luck, but you never seem to know when it is one or the other. Definitely not worth $9.99, and will not buy the others until the price is reduced.
