I have to agree with the other replies: As published, Arthas was a great framework for a novel, but it needed to be fleshed out. The Shattering was better, although it, too, suffered from a bit too much "k, so this happened, then we ran here and this happened and then…."There nothing wrong with a story being written on rails, but it needs to be crafted well enough that it doesn't *feel* like it's on rails. It's the difference between Tom Clancy's "The Hunt for Red October" (fantastic book with rereadability) and "Debt of Honor" (linear, plodding, and predictable).
