It's hard to believe that this is the same guy that wrote the Son of Suns trilogy.

Please have you read Son of Suns recently? The angst is just as strong.

Seriously. The story isn't even much fun to read, it's just Luke moping. At least in the Son of Suns Luke was doing things and not angsting about his latest drug problem.

Another update. I stand by my previous comment, there's a hint towards more action but I thought that the last time before Luke went back to moping and angsting about his addictions.

Oh god. So I'm not the only one who got sick of several thousand words of this drivel.

New update, stuff actually happens but it leads towards what looks like the same old song and dance.

I'm thinking this is one of those stories that might be better if read all at one time. Maybe I'll wait till it is completed or for five or so chapters to come out before I read it again. The constant angst and self-destructive decisions make this story a bit tiring to read after a while.

Chapter 26

So much talking and not a single step forwards.

The best chapter I can remember.
 
The end is stupidly frustrating, his habit of using got so old 20 chapters ago. It takes away the appeal of any new development by cyclically going back 5 steps for the 1 taken to advance the plot.

He very specifically didn't use, though. Considering the past 20 chapters, my own expert use of cliffhangers, and my authoring senses, I believe that Luke is done with spice. If he wasn't, there would be no cliffhanger. He'd have toked up at the end of the chapter, because that's the norm; no reason to make a cliffy for something you've seen a thousand times already. This is a cliffhanger because it's a special moment. Different than all the ones before. He won't use.

I think.
