Run Time: 9 hrs and 41 mins
Jim’s been summoned to his grandmother’s homeworld to take a test to see if he’s worthy of being a royal.
- Learning about the culture and such made the first half of the book fascinating, but then it dragged and dragged.
- The action is ridiculous and hum drum because there’s no sense of danger. I think that comes from Jim’s power set being dialed so high. Nothing can touch him, so it’s just a matter of how is he going to beat the bad guys today.
- First time time travel is mentioned in the series. Still not a fan. Just causes too many problems.
- With his skillset, some of Jim’s actions don’t make much sense, so he has to “lose” his abilities for a time.
- Bad guy’s motive is kinda bland.
- Once again, Jim knows and uses words that most kids wouldn’t ever use.
- Some of the culture stuff creeped into infodumping. Like one character scolding another about a lack of history knowledge then proceeding with a lengthy tale, but most managed to be integrated well.
- 2 hrs from the end you learn the bad guy in a lengthy infodumping session.
- The end was kind of satisfying. Ends as a wrapup of current crisis and a continuation to next book.
A decent but not overly sensational (and somewhat confusing) entry in a good series.
