A missed chance in gloomy overkill

I was looking forward to a well deserved academia takedown. But this one is over
the top, even for such a juicy target.
There are so many awful people lined up in a row, it grows depressing, hard to fin…

This one is a notch above

They follow the same formula but I thought this one was particularly good.
The story lines are good, with a nice twist at the end, but the new characters are

Good lead character, location, bad plot

There is a reward for patience at the end

I’ve read his books before and found them somewhat engaging so I thought I would

lead character is unbelievable as he races from one superhuman encounter to the…
