The Silent Army

The Silent Army (Seven Forges, #4)The Silent Army by James A. Moore
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Thanks to the Silent Army the City of Wonders has been spared, at least for the moment. The Sa'ba Taalor and their gods still want the City destroyed and the Sa'ba Taalor are obedient more than anything else.

The Silent Army was a letdown. After the first two books set the stage and the third book brought the war to fruition, I expected a truly grand finale. Instead the story simply felt stretched for little reason. It was very much more of the same with some shrouded occurrences that don't get fully resolved. The ending was confusing and unfulfilling as well.

The author built some truly intriguing concepts, but he chose not to explain things in the end or even expand them enough to be satisfying. There are questions I still want to see answered, but I don't know if there will ever be greater resolution which is annoying.

The Silent Army was disappointing and I wish The City of Wonders and The Silent Army were combined into one book. It would have been less frustrating.

2.5 out of 5 stars
