Broken Phoenix

Broken Phoenix - Edmond Manning
DNF at 54%

I don't want to rate it because:

1)I am a big fan of Edmond Manning
2)It is not that I am not going to try it again. But right now I am not in the mood for it.

I have a big, huge problem with EVERYTHING here-the story, the writing and all around.
I can't connect me with it. I see only a high thick wall, behind is something beautiful, that everyone sees in Broken Phoenix, but it is hidden from me. I'm an outsider here.
I hope I'll come back to it, but to tell the truth, I'm not sure.

Oh, Edmond, why are you wasting your time with something like this instead of writing the next King's book? :((
