Better than the last couple I read but will give it a break for a while. I chose to read this series as my husband loved them. I can see some of the reasons. The characters are light and clear cut, the stories are hero tales and if you love superheroes then this would be a totally suitable series. For me there is a lack of development of the characters and relationships currently (the best parallel I can think of is either discworld novels which I enjoy but cannot read too often as its like a sitcom you dip into and know the "style" of).
