It’s a good thing I didn’t read this first book by the author first as it would gave put me off the other two series; Dis and Rex Nihilo.
The problem is the the author is trying so hard to be funny, with witticisms, back-story, character asides and tangents it just derails the story. There appears to be one there and it may have been good but I just got lost. And even though I persisted to 90%, at the end I just lost interest.
