||I found this series to be mostly boring. The main setting of a battle graveyard was intriguing but the story didn't use it well. The newer books in the last few years are written just like these books. They are short and not well developed. The characters do things that they didn't do in the series. They constantly repeat what happened just a few chapters earlier instead of telling something new. They also spend a great deal of time with new characters and with trying to bring into the story every character. They use to make one or two characters the main focus of that story,just as they did on the series, and now they seem to think it is better to tell every character personal story. This series also has very little action as it tends to be more talk and introducing more and more characters.
