Getting a bit repetitive
I do like this author but lately it seems that many of his books are following the same basic formula.

Disappointed with the character development
What would have made Treachery’s Tools better?
it appear the author ran out of idea, the story could shorten by half.
What was most disappointing about L. E. Modesitt Jr.’s story?
Weak willed character that doesn't make any sense. The main character is a powerful imager that in charge of school with student being kill left and right, but all he do is internalized that how sorry that happen. When given the chance to take action by killing the one that attempt to kill him and actually kill his people, all he does is kill the hireling and leave the mastermind alone. Unlike previous main character of the series [Alastar] is weak and indecisive. The book about this character doesn't add to the world but taken away from it. In other series Alastar would've been a side antagonize character.
Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I like the reading, he make the character real.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Treachery’s Tools?
I would tell the author to not milk the story, the story is long for it own sake instead of imparting information or character. A lot of unneeded drag out of scene just for the word count.
Any additional comments?
I love the Author writing and the series previous book, but this book really get to me. The main character are weak and the plot is lacking.
