The writing was just abysmally bad, plus there were a lot if stupid mistakes (like calling the year 2500 a “new millennium”). It’s a quick, easy read, with nothing added of value to either the mythos or this series. It is not aligned correctly with the first novel, citing mistakes as if the first novel was not consulted by this writer. It’s OK in the series. Just ok. Like a bad episode of your favorite TV series. But no good on its own.
