Frozen Tides: A Falling Kingdoms Novel - Morgan Rhodes

Not much new happening.  I mean, same writing, stories and characters but really the story hasn't moved along much.

 

I don't mind the melodrama that pervades the series — it's actually part of the appeal — but, one of my least favorite tropes has appeared.  The trope where one main character has years of knowing someone is a creep plus details that clearly another main character (and supposed love interest) needs to know.  Do they speak up while creep ingratiates into love interest's life, nope.  Foreshadow a probable if-only-we-had-talked in the ending.
