The last book in the Aurian cycle, by Maggie Furey, isn't as bad as the other ones. Yay! This gives me hope instead of dread when those Words: "I have another book/series in progress" are said at the end of the novel.
Though I could wish that she'd gotten that level of polish on fanfic rather than published.
But that, for she who has yet to finish a complete novel, is just catty.
