I only made it 50 pages into Kai Meyer’s Arcadia Awakens. There is something off about the translation to me. Many of the phrases seem stilted and blunt. I have not read Meyer before; perhaps this is owing to style more than translation.
Still, I never got into the story or wrapped my head around the characters and, at this point, I don’t need to. I have too much to read without devoting time to books that do nothing for me.
