diamond cut Reviews
First, let me say that I rarely write out a full review. I only do so when I feel that a book (or series, author, etc.) deserves special recognition. I most certainly feel that the Glass Complex Trilogy, and author John Hindmarsh, deserve for me to spend a little time to leave a written review. I cannot recommend the Glass Complex Trilogy enough. All three books in the trilogy were compelling reads in their own right, but the overall series was simply incredible. This is the type of find that simply makes me giddy, because it delivers far more than expected. From the first chapter, I was hooked. The story was fast paced, creative, and I was truly sad that I had finished the book. Ultimately, that is a simple rule of thumb for me to know if a book (or series) is truly special. This trilogy is truly special.The expected scientific advances found in most space operas were intertwined by the author with certain ancient cultural traditions in a way I found to be unique and essential to the narrative. I am not going to give away any spoilers, so I will wrap up my review. But I highly recommend this series to anyone looking for a diamond in the rough. This series is absolutely worth a look.
MehIt was an okay book. A decent finish to a pretty cookie cutter sci fi trilogy. I wasn't over impressed. It carried the same issues as the rest of the series. The first book is still the best. Relationships just sort of appear. There's very little actual development and the "show don't tell" technique is not utilised which makes it very difficult to get involved and attached to the characters.
Diamond Cut (Glass Complex Trilogy #3) by John HindmarshA great finish to the series! I completely enjoyed reading this last installment of the trilogy. The writing was clean and the timing well paced. The characters drove the plot, and were more dimensional than before. The action was clean, and well done. So go read it! After you read the other two, of course.
Greatly enjoyed the three books in this series. Well written and interesting. Will look for additional books by John Hindmarsh.
