I have no idea when the story will end, as that’s up to the author. It’s been a pretty good run so far, but I feel the story is wearing thin and nearing the end.
Now everything is about Declan, and that is pushing me away from the series. Don’t get me wrong, I like Declans character, but it’s the Demon Accords not the Declan Accords.
Declan is the main protagonist in, Executable, and College Arcane, which makes sense. Then he gets half of God Hammer, and Rogues. Then it’s back to Declan in Summer Reign AND Winterfall. Snake Eyes was fairly balanced thankfully, but then we got Demon Divine, another Declan centric book.
Caeco gets a book and most of the conversations in the story are where’s Declan, what’s he doing, what’s he thinking… sigh. And more of the same old “why do these people have this much power arguments and how can we take it from them or put them in their place”, and more politicians being politicians. We get it, we got it pretty clearly in book 2. Sixteen books in I just skip those parts.
Now we get the long awaited Tanya POV book and it felt like more of the same, where’s Declan, what’s he doing, what’s he thinking… sigh.
In his interview Mr. Conroe said his favorite character right now is Declan. We can tell, and the series is hurting because of it, at least in my opinion.
I’m not a published author, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, so take my opinion for what it’s worth, which is nothing. It’s just my opinion.
All in all, The Demon Accords is still one of my favorite series and I go back and read and listen to it all the time. Mr Conroe has a talent for descriptive writing that is a joy to read and I wish him all the success he deserves.
