If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
It's overall an average series so far. It wasn't bad enough to stop listening, and if you are going on a long journey then this would keep you mildly entertained. That aside I wouldn't really recommend this...There are better things out there.
What could David A. Wells have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
So first 3 books...51 hours, and I'm pretty ambivalent to most of the characters so I'd say utilisation of character connection is lacking, or even the world building. It's interesting but it doesn't really stand out to other things I've read. There are moments that are really, really interesting, and I was like "Yeah! This is cool!" ...The first time they happen... Book 1 and 2 are pretty repetitive, and it actually pissed me off a bit towards the end.
Book three picks everything up a bit and I'd give that 3 1/2 stars on it's own. I think the writing does improve, or perhaps I've just got used to it? But more than that I actually started to care about the characters and think they were kinda cool.

Repetitive in spots. Got better as it went on.
The first book was extremely repetitive but it did get better as it went on. Debating on following up with listening to book 4, not sure if it's worth the audible credit.

I regret buying. Plenty of content, but very basic writing skills. Won't finish the series.
