“Trafik” - Rikki Ducornet

Not sure how I feel about this. I’ll have to let it sink in more.

I'm on Epiphany right now. Will report back.
Epiphany of the Long Sun - 6

Not great. A real struggle in the last third tbh with some total eye rolling moments. Wolfe is a master at writing in different voices but this just didn't do it for me, especially with all of the potential he set up in Litany. Short Sun next!

Apologies if you already said this, but I can barely keep his books straight (and they’re not easy to search since sometimes two books are in a single book)…
1. Have you ready all the books in the series published before epiphany?
2. Is there any point where quality goes downhill?

I read the 4 New Sun books, and have been tempted to start the Long Sun.
