Just the Facts:
Overall Rating: 3 stars
Addiction Level: Spare time --> I read it every waking moment.
Believe-ability: Some aspects were real; others were not.
It took me two years to read my best friend’s favorite series. I declined, I was busy, I was lost in other worlds.
Seeds of Discovery did not win me over. In fact I was less than enthralled. It was too slow for my action-packed self, and it had too much exposition and very little conflict. I read it, because Book Club chose to read it, it was free, and I did not want to be a complete party pooper. I whined while I read it…a lot…very unbecoming I know.
You must be asking yourself why did I continue? Why would I even bother writing a review if book one was sooo bad? Puttroff ended Seeds of Discovery in a cliff hanger! Maybe I took it as a challenge. In any event, I needed to know what happened next! Book Two, Roots of Insight, satisfied my curiosity and wetted my appetite for more. The more I read the better the series got. I could have ended with book four, Blooms of Consequence. I was satisfied with the ending.
Books five and six (Cane of Divergence and Leaves of Revolution) continued the adventures in the new land. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed the stories and how much better the writing was.
The only thing left to do is read Crossed Roses, book one from Will’s point of view!
